Reviews

'If these ardent renderings … do not find a place in your heart then you should wonder what your heart's made of' (Classic FM Magazine)
The importance of Haydn Wood’s contributions to the ballad repertoire is demonstrated by this further tender example. The poet this time is ‘Royden Barrie’, a pseudonym that hid the identity of Rodney Bennett, a writer of educational textbooks who was also the father of composer Richard Rodney Bennett.
