Synopsis

Product Description
Following its award-winning Christmas album, Sleep, Holy Babe (Naxos 8.572868), 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.

Kevin G. (kkg-ct) from NEW FAIRFIELD, CT
Reviewed on 1/1/2018...
Toughest kind of review, content very good, just not what I expected. This is first and foremost a chorale selection regards British Folk Songs. The production its well done if contrary to "folk" , too much polish. If I was familiar with the song diction of British folk songs the lyrical content would have been more clear to me. A practiced ear for choral will enjoy since quite good.
