Notes and Editorial Reviews

'These modest miniatures reveal a composer who was able, not only to invent memorable ideas, but to do some artful things with them. Conspicuously Ireland-like titles such as Frensham Pond evoke a summery idyllic mood. The eight songs, beautifully delivered by John Mark Ainsley, are likewise warm romantic visions of bliss.' (The Sunday Times) 'A miniaturist and melodist of quality. His case is argued in performances of notable distinction' (The Yorkshire Post) 'Lloyd Webber's is a voice that should be heard, and it could hardly be heard to greater advantage than [here]' (Classic CD) 'A delightful selection. Expertly crafted and melodically felicitous. Fine performances from an all-star cast' (Hi Fi News) 'These modest miniatures reveal a composer who was able, not only to invent memorable ideas, but to do some artful things with them.
