Blossom Street, Hilary Campbell

Following its award-winning Christmas album, Sleep, Holy Babe (Naxos 8572868), Blossom Street explores a wide-ranging sequence of British folk song settings for choir, with a particular focus on the nautical. The repertoire embraces pioneers in the rediscovery and arrangement of folk songs such as Vaughan Williams, Grainger and Warlock, adds little-known gems by Holst and Bairstow, and also introduces vibrant new additions to the repertoire from contemporary composers, including James MacMillan and Judith Bingham and the conductor herself.

Sleep, Holy Babe (8572868), Blossom Street’s last album with Naxos, was selected as one of ClassicFM’s Christmas CDs of the Year.

“It is some indication of the quality of the 23 singers in Blossom Street that all the solos are outstanding, pure and true...It adds to the value of the disc that full texts are provided, and the recording is excellent, vivid and immediate with a nice feeling of atmosphere.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2013

“The singing of Blossom Street gives much pleasure. The choir numbers 23 (6/5/6/6) and the sound is consistently fresh and well-balanced...It makes for enjoyable listening.” MusicWeb International, 17th October 2013

“these early recordings show the delight within Pears's and Britten's responses to Schubert and to English song.” BBC Music Magazine, September 2013 ****

“The recordings reissued on this release date from the years between 1947 and 1960, at a time when the mannerisms which unfortunately sometimes marred Pears’s later recordings were not so evident...These recordings are all available elsewhere in various compilations of Pears’ art, but it is valuable to have them gathered on this very reasonably priced disc.” MusicWeb International, 19th June 2013

Peter Pears (tenor)

These recordings, made over the space of a decade from March 1954 to December 1964, capture Peter Pears in the high summer of his career and at the peak of his powers, a period roughly framed by some of the highlights of his partnership with Benjamin Britten: the creation of the character of Peter Quint in the composer’s The Turn of the Screw in Venice in September 1954 and the euphoric response to the first performance in 1962 of the War Requiem, one of the great events of post-war English musical life. The title ‘An Anthology of English Song’ was chosen by Decca for a projected three volumes featuring Pears. The first, with Julian Bream, included Renaissance lute songs by Dowland, Morley and others. The second was presumably intended to included 18th and 19th-century titles but was never made. The third, made in 1955, consisted of 20th-century English song, and much of this material appears on CD for the first time [CD2: 10-21].

A year earlier, Pears and Britten recorded nine of Britten’s folk song arrangements; these particular recordings (made in the same sessions as those for Winter Words) too receive their first release on CD [CD2: 1-9].

More British song was recorded with Britten in 1963 and with pianist Viola Tunnard (who worked closely with Britten in the 1960s, particularly on the Church Parables) in 1964. Of special interest too, will be works Pears commissioned from contemporary composers including the Cycle for Declamation by the South-African-born Priaulx Rainier, a testing tour de force for unaccompanied voice and Richard Rodney Bennett’s dramatic 1961 setting for voice and cello of the anonymous 17th-century ballad Tom O’Bedlam’s Song.

“Gracefully patrician in tone but always perceptive, Pears, with Britten's acute accompaniment, explores a wide range of British song from Butterworth to Tippett.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2011 ****

“To Daffodils is exquisitely sung, and The merry month of May is a tour de force spectacularly brought off by Viola Tunnard” … “The record is completed by a splendid scena by Richard Rodney Bennett, the accompaniment for cello alone, and three prose texts by John Donne set by Priaulx Rainier for unaccompanied voice. Peter Pears sings these with marvellous intensity and understanding, and Joan Dickson’s cello playing in Tom O’ Bedlam is very good indeed.” Gramophone Magazine

Philip Heseltine was born in London in 1894 and in his short life won public acclaim for the songs he wrote under the pseudonym Peter Warlock. He was particularly noted for his settings of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century texts, and brought the most delicate sensibility of the music of that period to his compositions. Warlock was considered an authority on Elizabethan music and in the course of his life he edited over three hundred Elizabethan and Jacobean lute songs for voice and keyboard or for choir.

Rarely can these works have been so beautifully and movingly performed on record as in this celebrated album, featuring John Mark Ainsley at the peak of his considerable powers, perfectly accompanied by Roger Vignoles.

“This is surely one of the best representations of Warlock on records” American Record Guide

“Singer and song are ideally matched, pianist and piano part likewise, and the shade of Philip Heseltine should gain contentment” Gramophone Magazine

“Enthusiastically recommended” Fanfare

“Whether you collect tenors, English music or simply good singing, don’t be without this” BBC Music Magazine
