Five Am'rous Sighs

'London Pride' (CDA67457)
London Pride
No 1: Between your sheets you soundly sleep
No 2: Finish! Finish, these Languours make me sick
No 3: My heart still hovering round about you
No 4: All these dismal looks and fretting
No 5: Venus, take my votive glass

Five Am'rous Sighs
Published in 2001, Five Am’rous Sighs evokes eighteenth-century metropolitan life in settings of poems by Lady Mary Wortley Montagu and Matthew Prior. For a singer like me, more used to dead composers than living ones, it was a great pleasure to give the first public performance of this gorgeous piece in the presence of its composer in that first London Pride performance at the Spitalfields Festival.
