Reviews

'Songs which gain in stature through being presented in sequence and superbly done' (Gramophone)

'two superb voices alive to Gibbs’s many moods, while Roger Vignoles accompaniments are a model of sensitivity and understanding' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Geraldine McGreevy and Stephen Varcoe are persuasive advocates … Roger Vignoles is the ideal accompanist, adding to the atmosphere of each song' (The Guardian)

'Most of these songs I had not heard before, nor, I suspect, have most listeners. Hyperion must be thanked for making them available' (International Record Review)

'lyrical, imaginative … Geraldine McGreevy’s soprano voice is sweet and pure' (Classic FM Magazine)

'Stephen Varcoe sings with typical sensitivity … Roger Vignoles offers shapely, perfectly-scaled accompaniments' (Yorkshire Post)

'ces mélodies sont exquises sans être précieuses. La sensibilité est fine, l’expression nuancée mais sans artifice' (Monde de La Musique)
