British music for voice and piano, all written between 1970 and 1998, by the cream of contemporary compsoers.
 

”CDs like this do not gain massive publicity or renown, yet they do a great service to both singer and song - and therefore music as an art. This CD could well grace many private record collections and brings together 25 imaginative songs.”
 

Music and Vision

“The impressive soprano Alison Smart, of the BBC Singers, makes her recorded debut as a recitalist, accompanied by Katharine Durran. They offer an interesting selection of songs, often with a folkish flavour.”

Paul Driver
 

The Sunday TImes

“ Alison Smart… shows that she has a fine range of expressiveness. She is ably supported by Katharine Durran. Metier’s sound is admirably clear."

Guy Rickards
