William Lloyd Webber was the father of two famous sons: composer Sir Andrew and cellist Julian. However, he was also a distinguished composer in his own right and wrote much attractive music. He may have written more than he did but he spent much of his life as an administrator, most famously as the Director of The London School of Music.
This CD assembles a selection of chamber pieces and songs carefully chosen by his son Julian and recorded by The Nash Ensemble as part of their ongoing series of recordings of British music for Hyperion. The eight songs are magically sung by John Mark Ainsley to the piano of Ian Brown.
