'Another fine addition to the Hyperion treasure-house of vocal recordings' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

‘If … at the very thought of hazy June fields, your eyes mist up or you feel a lump in the throat, then this record is for you. On it, the tenor Paul Agnew sings, exquisitely, 25 exquisite songs by Ivor Gurney. The songs themselves … are without exception minor miracles of controlled pathos and these performances do them more than justice’ (International Record Review)

‘Gurney’s turmoil surfaces the songs in Paul Agnew’s sublime Hyperion disc’ (Classic FM Magazine)

‘A prize release for English song connoisseurs’ (Music Week)
