Fine songs by British composers, with a slightly unusual instrumentation rather than the usual piano!
 

“Animal Heaven puts together a rather neat collection of fresh-textured works” 
 

The Scotsman

“All of these works are given strong, highly committed performances by John Turner and his ensemble, with Alison Wells being worthy of particular praise for her confident vocal delivery. The recording is well focused and natural. I very much hope that Metier and the same artists have more in store for us in the future.”
