The Heritage of English Song series is a terrific collection that presents and preserves the long and glorious tradition of English song.
Book 12 contains a stunning selection of Roger Quilter songs selected and introduced by Trevor Hold. Quilter was a modest songwriter who encapsulated his ideas with uncomplicated but effective music. Subtle, generous and warm, they are a delight to play and sing, both for amateur or professional.
The Twelve Songs in this volume represent the height of Quilter's work from 1908 to 1935. All pieces are in wonderful settings for medium-high Voice and Piano.
