The Heritage of English Song series is a terrific collection that presents and preserves the long and glorious tradition of English song.

        Nice to see Roger Quilter's music in print. A forgotten gem of Englishness.
        I was hoping the piano arrangements would make solo piano pieces to play in their own right.

        Quilter is singable, beautifully crafted, finely balanced between voice and piano. Not sufficiently deep to sustain a whole programme, nevertheless individual Quilter songs will always merit their place in any representative programme of English song. This edition is legible and accurate, and will help keep his gentle heritage alive.

        A good selection of Roger Quilter songs. I was hoping I could perform the piano parts as solo pieces.
