Notes and Editorial Reviews

Grainger’s mastery of choral textures shines out of this wide-ranging collection of folk-song arrangements, each highly individual and memorable. Plus his friend Grieg’s finely scored religious settings. Superior performances by Stephen Layton and Polyphony.

Performance: 5 (out of 5), Sound: 5 (out of 5)
