 Anthony Michaels-Moore
 Michael Pollock - (piano)
   
   


From ‘one of the most gorgeous voices on the opera stage today’ comes a marine song-recital by Stanford which celebrates a time when England ruled the waves. The cycles by Vaughan Williams look further, from the Dorset vales towards America and the far horizon that has always attracted poets and composers.

"...Michaels-Moore records the piano version [of the Stanford], throwing the burden of colour and expression on to the voice with considerable success...with Michael Pollock offering fluent support throughout...In [the Vaughan Williams], Michaels-Moore faces equal competition...but concedes little, whether in his response to the themes of youth and age, or in sheer vocal beauty ...”    ****

BBC Music magazine - August 2013


“...a disc full of delights, with inspired performances from Anthony Michaels-Moore, made the more compelling by the deliciously sprung accompaniments of Michael Pollock...so consistently persuasive that one hardly misses the chorus and orchestra ...”

Gramophone magazine - September 2013


"In all these sea-faring songs Michaels-Moore’s voice is richly unfurled. Stanford’s settings are great fun, especially when sung and played as enthusiastically as here. As his songs do not receive the attention that they deserve, these selections fill a gap."
