This disc of works for counter-tenor and piano explores some gems of 20th century British song. Focussing on the Renaissance-inspired songs of Peter Warlock and Herbert Howells, the disc also sheds light on two lesser-known yet equally talented song composers.

Tim Travers-Brown's future engagements include works by Monteverdi and Grandi with La Nuova Musica at The Wigmore Hall and Purcell's Bonduca with the OAE at King's Place.

“Tudor and Renaissance styles mix happily with echoes of Delius in this wide-ranging CD...Tim Travers-Brown sings with a sinewy grace throughout and Jeremy Filsell accompanies with mercurial charm.”
