A collection of songs by Ronald Corp OBE, including his settings of Walt Whitman & A.E. Housman
RECORDING OF THE FORTNIGHT
"...Ronald Corp is perhaps best known for his choral compositions but here he displays a knack for finding everyone’s favourite verse, whether comedic or rapturous, and setting it for solo voice with a simplicity that nonetheless achieves freshness and impact..."
Classical Music Magazine
"His spare, bittersweet settings of 12 Housman poems and some interestingly febrile Walt Whitman settings are the highlights… they find terrific champions in Stone and pianist Simon Lepper, who perform them with sensitivity and intelligence."
"...There are thirty-nine songs on this disc and it is a tribute to all involved that interest very seldom wanes. More please."
