 Lois Marshall Soprano


Seventeen traditional folk songs recorded at the height of soprano Lois Marshall’s career, performed with "an expressive warmth that is quite winning." New York Times. The accompanist is renowned harpist Judy Loman.
 

"This is not a recording from the later years of her career, when the voice lowered into the mezzo range. The performance dates from 1976. The beautiful purity of tone, the intensity of her communicative skill, the precise attention to turn of phrase - all are present in abundance."

 

The Vancouver Sun

"...a lovely album of English folk songs. The program is an interesting one that includes such well known items as Cloris Sigh’d and Dowland’s Come Again...and less familiar songs by John Attey, Ann Boleyn and John Bartlett; there are also sophisticated settings of folk material by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Benjamin Britten and Marjory Kennedy-Fraser."
 

The Whig-Standard Magazine

"...an exquisite collection of songs...Lois Marshall is at her best; her voice is a delight, with its purity and fluidity of tone. Loman’s harp accompaniment is lyrical and expresses great rapport between singer and accompanist. To each song Marshall brings her flawless vocal technique, musicianship and sensitivity of interpretation....Her voice is light and delicate but never at the cost of richness of sound. This excellent recording can be recommended to all connoisseurs of the art of the soprano, and to everyone who enjoys the sound of a beautiful voice in its prime."

*****
I've never been to the British Isles, but never mind. I bought this CD and now I know what it is like. Beautiful music, instrumental and also singing. Like music from an inspiring movie. I do certainly not regret buying it.
