Reviews

'These two CDs, finely recorded and thoughtfully presented, are a most timely and valuable addition to the catalogue' (Gramophone)

'This fine collection of settings by poets as diverse as Herrick, Heine and Tagore is full of surprises and beautifully performed by all, especially pianist Roger Vignoles' (The Observer)

'Prepared and performed with the care and conviction for which Hyperion is famous. Those who simply love vocal recitals will find plenty of enjoyment in these well-documented discs, as well as a further revelation of the wealth of 'English Renaissance' contributions to art song. Distinguished performances of little-known but substantial, and often impressive, repertoire' (Classic CD)

'Another superb collection of songs' (Financial Times)
Thy hand in mine has some similarities to the much earlier song E’en as a lovely flower in layout and general mood, but the harmony is more interesting, and the poem, though not of great import, less open to cynical misunderstanding.
