Dutton Epoch’s survey of tuneful short works by John Ireland (including the last two unrecorded songs orchestrated by Ireland himself and sung here by Roderick Williams) is filled out with a selection of encores by British composers and two unrecorded orchestral songs by Elgar. The overture by Tranchell, a gorgeous interlude by Walter Collins and tuneful folk dance arrangements by Herbert Murrill are coupled with more substantial fare by Lionel Sainsbury – a muscular and invigorating Allegro Risoluto for strings and Elis Pehkonen’s evocative and finely drawn orchestral sunset, Sunset and Evening Star.
“Roderick Williams declaims his own orcehstration of Annabel Lee rather well, and enjoys two robust sea songs”
