The first album in a two-album series that comprises the complete songs of Havergal Brian (1876-1972)
"...Mark Stone and Sholto Kynoch prove strong interpreters of the songs, some of the most individual in the British repertoire… Strongly recommended."
"Even when Brian’s prosody seems curious or arbitrary he shapes the vocal lines with a pleasing naturalness, and he finds an altogether more intimate approach in songs like ‘Farewell’. (Stone also provides the booklet notes, which are well researched and free from egregious error.)"
International Record Review
"...Brian fanatics, while no doubt queueing up for more, will savour the consistently strong performance by these three fine musicians..."
