A pupil of Nadia Boulanger, Peter Wishart (1921-84) produced a body of song which no-one interested in our musical heritage can afford to ignore. This volume, which is set for the Trinity College Licentiate and Fellowship diploma and Guildhall School Grade examinations, brings together a dozen of his finest works in the medium that will prove ideal for recital centrepieces or as encores.

        Musicroom Reviews

        Fantastic! This book is great for anyone who is interested in 20th Century British song repertoire. There are a few gems in here and most of the songs are truly suited to a medium voice as the title suggests. There are a couple of songs that are perhaps more suited to a soprano/tenor but they could also be sung by a high mezzo/baritone. There is quite a range of difficulty level too - most of the songs are quite tricky musically, but I would say that they could be tackled by a Grade 8 level student and a couple are a little bit easier. Plenty of songs in here to get stuck into - there are a couple that would make a good encore and they would all sound great in a recital. The only thing is that there aren't many recordings of them around so I guess it's difficult to listen to them before you buy, but I think they're fabulous! Well worth the money.
