        I don't think that Gurney has ever written a bad song, and the settings of theses five elizabethan songs are no exception to that. They have lyrical melodies with beautiful, leid like accompiaments. Sleep, is one of the pieces on the ABRSM Diploma sylabus and one of my favorite arrangments from the set. It's flowing melodies and subtle false relations give it a beautifuly melencholy tone, and isn't as difficult as some other technical pieces on the sylabus. Certainly something to consider.
