Description/Abstract:First recording of Quilter's Complete Folksong Arrangements, and premiere recordings of vocal duets.
Rooted in the sound of the Victorian drawing-room ballad, Roger Quilter’s songs are elegant, refined, often private, always exquisite and without undue embellishment. Although Quilter did not draw on English folk-song as a musical resource in the way that Vaughan Williams and others did, he was very well aware of the heritage and himself arranged a variety of songs, ‘one of the most delicate and dangerous undertakings’. This recording, which includes several world premières, presents the Complete Folk-Song Arrangements and Complete Part-Songs for Women’s Voices
