Osian Ellis (harp & voice)

‘Wales is rich in folk songs, and the art of singing these songs is very much alive today,’ writes Osian Ellis to the original note (reprinted in the CD booklet) accompanying this L’Oiseau-Lyre LP. Renowned for his harpistry and to many through his recordings of music by Benjamin Britten (with whom he worked closely), this extremely rare recording, made for L’Oiseau-Lyre in 1961 here receives its first release on CD. What makes it even more of a collector’s item is the fact that Ellis is both singer and harpist on this recording. It ranges from Baroque songs to music from the nineteenth century (Boughton’s once-popular Faery Song) to folk songs from Wales, and includes a composition (‘O mistress mine’) by Ellis himself.

“[the songs are] launched and sustained with arresting expressiveness. […] The whole gamut of moods in the Welsh songs is found to be more artfully arranged when one has played it through several times. I found many of the songs, unfamiliar at first, growing on me as I repeated them. […] I found the recording easy and realistic … and enjoyable.” Gramophone Magazine, April 1962

Born in 1894, Peter Warlock was one of England’s great songwriters – described by Lennox Berkeley as one of the “most colourful talents in English 20th century music”. His output was prolific. In addition he was a distinguished editor and transcriber of a vast amount of early music as well as an author of several books and many articles, editor and music critic. He was very close to Delius – indeed was obsessed with Delius’s music and wrote a book about him, and also assisted Beecham in organising a Delius festival in 1929. He shared a cottage with fellow composer E. J. Moeran. He suffered bouts of depression and sadly he was found dead in his Chelsea flat in December 1930, of gas poisoning.

Gathered here are the original 78rpm recordings from the John Bishop Collection – divided into Orchestral and Chamber on CD1 and vocal items on CD2. John Bishop was one of the leading lights of the Peter Warlock Society, and all tracks have been remastered by Andrew Rose of Pristine Audio.

The booklet contains fascinating and informative notes, rare photographs and original 78rpm matrix numbers with recording dates.

English Ayres by Thomas Campion

English Ayres by Thomas Campion


Campion:

Come, cheerful day

The Peaceful Western Wind

Turn Back You Wanton Flyer

It fell on a summer's day

When to her lute Corinna sings

Break now, my heart, and die

My love hath vow'd

I care not for these ladies

Shall I come, sweet love, to thee?

Fire! Fire! Fire! Fire!

All looks be pale

Jacke and Jone they think no ill

There is a Garden in her face

Faine would I wed

Sweet exclude Me not

Could My Heart More Tongues Employ

Kind Are Her Answers

A Secret Love Or Two

Beauty Is But A Painted Hell

Oft have I sigh’d for him that hears me not

I Must Complain

Leave prolonging thy distress

The cypress curtain of the night

Author of Light

Never weather-beaten sail

Thomas Campion: Lute Songs


Campion:

Come let us sound with melody

Tune thy music to thy heart

Come you pretty false-ey'd wanton

There is none, O none but you

Sweet exclude Me not

I care not for these ladies

Though you are young and I am old

Fire! Fire! Fire! Fire!

Shall I come, sweet love, to thee?

Beauty, since you so much desire

What is it all that men possesse

The cypress curtain of the night

Jacke and Jone they think no ill

It fell on a summer's day

When to her lute Corinna sings

My sweetest Lesbia

Her Rosie Cheekes

Fair, if you expect admiring

There is a Garden in her face

Author of Light

Never weather-beaten sail

Most sweet and pleasing are thy wayes

To Musicke bent is my retyred minde

Thou joy'st, fond boy

Turne all thy thoughts to eyes

Vaile, love, mine eyes

Rosseter:

What then is love but mourning?


Dorothy Linell (lute), Steven Rickards (counter-tenor)

“Like Nicholas Lanier, his younger contemporary, Thomas Campion (1567-1620) is another of those remarkably versatile figures who played a major role in the flourishing secular arts of the Elizabethan and Jacobean eras. ... The American countertenor Steven Rickards has here chosen 28 of [Campion's] songs, a well-varied selection ranging from religious moralities to the charmingly insouciant Jacke and Joane, a panegyric in praise of simple country life. Campion's approach to the subject of love is in general considerably more light hearted than that of Dowland, and Rickards is particularly successful at brining out the sly insinuation in a song like It fell upon a sommers daie. But his singing is distinguished throughout by a freshness and lack of artifice that admirably suits Campion's direct, uncomplicated style. Diction is very good, too. The lute parts, by no means as complex or demanding as those of Dowland, are sympathetically performed. It would in fact be idle to suggest Campion's lute songs approach those of his greater contemporary, but the high quality of his poetry, easy melodic appeal, and often humorous approach make them a very appealing antidote to the near-unremitting seriousness of Dowland. Yet another excellent bargain from Naxos.” Early Music Magazine, August 1999
