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

Simon Edwards (tenor), Simon Lebens (piano) & Alain Fleischer (photography)

This CD-book brings songs by Benjamin Britten, Peter Warlock and Roger Quilter, sung by tenor Simon Edwards, accompanied by pianist Simon Lebens. While the CD gives pride of place to Britten, it would be wrong to forget the other two composers: Roger Quilter, 1877-1953, who wrote over a hundred songs; and Peter Warlock, who died in 1930 at the age of 36, also well known for his songs and influenced by Quilter but also by Bartok and Delius, his two contemporaries. The melodies interpreted here are illustrated by texts and photographs by Alain Fleischer, made specifically for this production. By a subtle shift, music and photographs merge in a creative alchemy composed of colours, shapes, contrasts and sounds. British music, British performers, aural and visual pleasure guaranteed.
