Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This intriguing anthology traces not only the development of Spanish song from the mid-16th century to the 20th, but also its influence on composers throughout Europe (among them Schumann, Delibes, Saint-Saëns and Ravel) – the only obvious omissions are Shostakovich's dazzling but neglected Spanish Songs (Op. 100). The Anglo-Spanish soprano Jill Gomez is an accomplished and attractive performer, who slips effortlessly from Spanish into German, and French into English...Her uniform approach marvelously brings out the Spanishness of all the songs – the two from Wolf’s Spanisches Liederbuch have rarely sounded so authentically Iberian..."
