 Blossom Street Choir
 Hilary Campbell Conductor


Following its award-winning Christmas album, Sleep, Holy Babe (Naxos 8.572868), Blossom Street explores a wide-ranging sequence of British folk song settings for choir, with a particular focus on the nautical. The repertoire embraces pioneers in the rediscovery and arrangement of folk songs such as Vaughan Williams, Grainger and Warlock, adds little-known gems by Holst and Bairstow, and also introduces vibrant new additions to the repertoire from contemporary composers, including James MacMillan and Judith Bingham and the conductor herself.
 

"... No fewer than seven of the items here are first recordings, including several items specially written for this disc ... the recording is excellent, vivid and immediate with a nice feeling of atmosphere."

Edward Greenfield - Gramophone magazine - Awards Issue 2013


"At the risk of prejudicing any latecomers and with 2013 barely half gone, I declare this release to be my choral album of the year. I’d be stupefied if anything stronger comes long. Wrap your ears around Judith Bingham’s ‘The Orphan Girl’ and marvel at her ingenious harmonies. John Duggan’s ‘Over the Moon’ puts you right there: into the blue beyond. Hilary Campbell’s setting of ‘Blow the Wind Southerly’ drags the old ditty two generations away from Ferrier’s hand-crafted, perilous simplicities to an era of faceless industrial fishing. Campbell is the conductor here of the professional chamber choir, Blossom Street. The standout track is James MacMillan’s ‘Lassie, Wad Ye Loe Me?’, a Scottish maiden’s misty dirge with a defiant undertone. I shall be singing it in the shower all next week, and inviting friends to join. Terrific stuff."  *****
