        Plymouth GB Experienced choral singer.
        Challenging but enjoyable set of choral pieces, VW always worth singing, and his take on English folk music is creative and respectful of context.
        You can't sing them normally as a set of five because the last one is very unmistakably a mid-winter carol/song. Personally I find much 'classical' reworking of folk music a bit over-written, and the VW is no exception.
