As a tribute to the late John Shirley-Quirk, Heritage is proud to re-issue the recordings he made of English song for the SAGA label in the 1960s. Three LPs were originally laid down: 'Songs of Travel', 'A Recital of English Song' and 'The Songs of John Ireland' and they appear here as a double CD. The performances are considered by many to be definitive and the present collection, re-mastered from the original tapes, appears by kind permission of the SAGA Continuation Trust.

The recordings have not been available in CD format for 20 years which makes this Heritage release highly anticipated. John Stanton Shirley-Quirk CBE (28 August 1931-7 April 2014) was an English bass-baritone who started his working life as a chemistry lecturer before becoming a member of the English Opera Group from 1964 to 1976. His early singing career began as a member of the Purcell Singers and as a lay clerk at St. Paul’s Cathedral. He went on to give premiere performances of several operatic and vocal works by Benjamin Britten, recording these and other works under the composer's direction. He sang and recorded a wide range of repertoire by other composers and consequently his discography is huge. His vocal style is characterised by a rich and smooth timbre coupled with a level of musicality which enabled him to interpret the music he was singing with great profundity.

Gregory Yurisich (bass-baritone)

Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, David Lloyd-Jones

Re-mastered and remixed for SACD surround sound from the original 1999 recording.

Peter Dawson was the Pavarotti of his time, popular enough to have his own fan club which exists to this day, and made over 2000 recordings between 1905 and 1958 (he died in 1961).

Opera baritone Gregory Yurisich has compiled a wonderful tribute in this recital of songs made famous by the great Australian baritone.

‘Old Father Thames’, ‘On the Road to Mandalay’, and other ballads are treated with affectionate gusto with terrific orchestral backing by the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra.

The music is cheerfully melodic and humorously patriotic and sentimental.

Beautifully packaged with new cover and label artwork.

Digipak with picture disc and 42-page colour booklet with essays and all song texts.

“An ideal CD to bring memories of yesteryear flooding back... Gregory Yurisich sings with style and precision... resembles a Robson in timbre, wide compass and powerful delivery.” MusicWeb International (on the Original CD Release)
