Peter Lea-Cox is an English composer who while concentrating on vocal (usually sacred) music, employs a huge range of styles in order to best express the words being set - from the dissonance of Winter Prelude to the simple folk-like melody of ’Let the Season Lift your Spirit’. Above all is Peter’s tremendous sensitivity to the texts and the word-painting and coloration he employs. This album presents a set of six songs on texts by Gerard Manley Hopkins, a set of Anthems for solo voice - for several of the ecclesiastical seasons - and a collection of other songs.

"... The recording is excellent, particularly when it comes to preseving the warmth of the piano. The venue was the Jaqueline du Prè building, St Hilda’s College, Oxford. A most enjoyable disc."

Colin Clarke - Fanfare - November/December 2013

"Peter Lea-Cox is an accomplished composer, much connected with the English choral tradition, and this new record of no fewer than 23 solo settings demonstrates his gifts and artistry in excellent fashion... each one of these carefully crafted songs has its own individual charm and character. The composer is fortunate indeed to have had Lesley-Jane Rogers and Jennie-Helen Moston to perform these works, for their performances are admirable and do much to ensure this deeply attractive body of music is brought to wider attention - which it clearly deserves. The recording quality is also very good, the singer being well balanced with the piano."   *****

Robert Matthew-Walker - Musical Opinion magazine - November/December 2013

“Will appeal to listeners who enjoy the vocal music of composers such as Gerald Finzi and John Ireland, the emphasis being on a sensitive fusion of words and music. I enjoyed the ‘Collected Songs’ best of all. Lesley-Jane Rogers gives an outstanding account of these songs. The accompanist Jennie-Helen Moston makes a valuable and sympathetic contribution. The sound quality is ideal. Explore slowly and enjoy the diversity on offer here.” 
John France - 

“This is a very attractive collection of songs and anthems that deserve to be included in the repertoire. As usual from Divine Art, the booklet is beautifully produced with notes by Lesley-Jane Rogers and Peter Lea-Cox together with full texts. The recording is excellent. Lesley-Jane Rogers’ … singing is often really lovely in the quieter and more gentle passages. I do urge all those interested in English song and church anthems to hear this disc.”
