'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)
