Nathan Vale (tenor) & Paul Plummer (piano)
Includes world premiere recordings
“Vale and his accomplished colleague Paul Plummer start with an unpublished song by Gurney, the spirited, stirring On Wenlock Edge with a grand tune…Immediately one is made aware of Vale’s clarity of tone, a clarity matched by that of the recording…As satisfying as he is in the liveliness of On Wenlock Edge, he is equally so in Down by the Salley gardens, which he sings with a touch of regret…He also conveys the sadness of Edward Thomas’s poem snow.” International Record Review
Usually despatched in 2 - 3 working days.
Delius & Gurney - English Songs
“It is difficult to conceive of performances more finely attuned to this spirit that hardly ever raises
its protest or its pain, its joy for that matter, above a mezzo-forte, and yet which conveys within its
mild utterances such feeling for the quality of life...” Gramophone
