'Finally, there's a real treat: the first recording of a recently discovered Nocturne, an intensely moving setting of Walt Whitman's 'Whispers of Heavenly Death' composed in 1908. It's evocatively sung here by Roderick Williams.'
BBC Music Magazine

'This is the work's [Nocturne] first recording, and lone makes the disc worth having.' '…this CD without doubt, is the finest technical recording yet made of these works, and I commend the engineers unreservedly.'
International Record Review

'It's a luxurious sound, as well-defined as always from Chandos: full of subtle detail and with fine depth of image. The surround sound balance offers considerably enhanced definition of this famous acoustic, adding weight and import to the sound.'
Gramophone
