 Hilary Campbell Conductor


Making their Resonus debut, is the renowned young professional chamber choir Blossom Street with their director Hilary Campbell.

The name Peter Warlock (nom de plume of Philip Heseltine (1894-1930)) is synonymous with both English song and breathtakingly beautiful carols for choir. Here Blossom Street present a selection of Warlock’s best-known carols alongside a number of lesser-known part-songs, with no fewer than six world premiere recordings.

Immediately apparent is the is the huge breadth of range seen throughout these exquisite miniatures – from the dark despair of The Shrouding of the Duchess of Malfi to the uproarious sociable songs for men’s voices, and the imagery contained in The Night to the haunting stillness of Warlock’s most frequently heard work Bethlehem Down – Warlock’s lyrical and harmonically rich sound world is always evident.

 "Seven premiere recordings here, in a programme offering a genuine expansion in our understanding of Warlock. The Full Heart, in eight parts, is particularly striking. Gorgeous sound; highly engaging, dedicated performances." ****

Terry Blain - BBC Music magazine (Brief Notes Section) - August 2014


 "... It’s a very enjoyable programme ... Campbell and her chamber-sized choir Blossom Street give committed readings of this repertoire, which time and again reveals Warlock’s highly attuned sensitivity to text..."

Philip Reed - Choir & Organ magazine - July/August 2014
