These artists have taken this programme on tour all over the world successfully for many years: 23 ballads, Dances, Popular Tunes and Entertainments (for Tenor, Lute, and Consort of Viols) from plays of William Shakespeare."The viol pieces are played with eloquence. Griffett sings straight-forwardly & with admirable enunciation & Brian Wright`s lute playing is similarly disarming. A likeable release." — Colin Anderson, Musical Opinion

“The lineage of these delightful pieces (a goodly proportion of which are arrangements of folk tunes) could be traced back to the melodies of the 18th century - totally un-fussy, workmanlike settings showing Stanford as no stuffy academic. There is great variety.” MusicWeb International, December 1998

James Griffett (tenor) & Bradford Tracey (fortepiano)


“These songs or early lieder are given sympathetic and, where needed, rousing readings from James Griffett. Apart from this issue, not many are featured in the current catalogue and thus this recital is most welcome. Griffett has a light pleasing tenor voice, here most aptly and considerately accompanied by Bradford Tracey, the one complementing the other. The fortepiano adds to the performances as it is nicely muted… it blends well with the voice and is unlikely by its very nature to overpower the singer… The delightful performances do full justice to the music. Haydn was ever one to entrance and delight via his lighter and more intimate compositions. Here we have cases in point and in plenty.” MusicWeb International (on the Canzonettas)
