The last few years have witnessed a general resurgence of interest in the songs of early to mid 20th century British composers and this has been a welcome development for anyone interestes in the genre. Whether on CD or in concert, through the actual published music or scholarly books on the subject, the work of such notable composers as Bax, Bliss, Brian, Bridge, Delius, van Dieren, Finzi, Gibbs, Grainger, Gurney, Howells, Ireland, Vaughan Williams and Walton are generally becoming more widely known. And it is squarely within this musical tradition that the songs of the three composers represented on this CD find their place.

Originally released on the Dunelm label in 2006, this recording will now form part of the Diversions imprint from Divine Art.
