SEA FEVER SONGS BY BRITISH COMPOSERSRoderick Williams

SEA FEVER SONGS BY BRITISH COMPOSERS
Roderick Williams

This survey of music for baritone and orchestra includes songs written between 1903 and 1935, and includes a duet featuring soprano Ailish Tynan from Parry's opera Guenever, which dates from 1886. Works by composers such as Bax, Boughton and Bainton are heard and, in Boughton's case, we are treated to three songs from his early Kipling settings Songs of the English'. These and many other delights are on offer, and the combined forces of Roderick Williams and the BBC Concert Orchestra under Martin Yates give impassioned performances of these glorious works.

"Roderick Williams ... is here on peak form: wonderfully clear diction, steady, even tone throughout his range, an exceptional alertness to mood and nuance. His voice has become a real pleasure to hear, the top especially thrilling, Add to that a willingness to explore esoteric repertoire such as this, and we are greatly privileged."
"... a labour of love duly rewarded in performance."
Piers Burton-Page, International Record Review, January 2008
