John Jeffreys is a British composer who specialises in music for solo voice and his songs, exemplified by this fine collection, are masterworks of the genre, directly in the tradition inherited from Moeran, Delius, Finzi, and especially Warlock.  Beautifully performed by James Gilchrist and Anna Tilbrook these works are timeless and will have lasting appeal.

“Not ‘fashionable’ perhaps, but a composer sensitive both to words and music. The programme includes eight first recordings. Tenor James Gilchrist has a warm voice, and has the support of a fine pianist. “

John Steane
 

Gramophone

“Worthy of comparison to much better-known composers....[Jeffreys] has an exceptional ability to create a variety of musical expressions that fit the words. You will not want to pass this up. Gilchrist’s voice has a gentleness, warmth and sweetness that is just right, and his enunciation is impeccable. Good notes and texts. “

R. Moore
 

American Record Guide

“Jeffreys could be counted among the great songwriters of the second English Renaissance… hi sparse, evanescent accompaniments are incredibly evocative and his melodies…release the fragrant depths of his chosen texts with seemingly effortless grace. Beautifully realised by tenor James Gilchrist”

Robert Levett

International Record Review

“This is music for a quiet evening – in contemplation of some of the less complex emotions aroused by things fine and beautiful – all beautifully sung by James Gilchrist with Anna Tilbrook accompanying.”
