Reviews

'Christopher Maltman at all times sings beautifully, capturing the emotions behind the words and music, and is ably accompanied by Roger Vignoles. As is their custom, Hyperion completes this superior production with intelligent annotation and complete texts' (American Record Guide)
Diaphenia, composed in October 1912, is a lilting love song setting words by Henry Constable. Its provenance is the Edwardian ballad, suitable for domestic music-making, rather than the art song, nevertheless it is utterly charming with an easy-going accompaniment suggesting the plucked strings of a lute, and juicy inner chromatic parts which hint at the aching ardour of the suitor.
