About the album
Following on from their critically-acclaimed first disc of songs of Roger Quilter, English song enthusiasts Mark Stone and Stephen Barlow have produced the second volume in their four-disc series. This tetralogy will comprise the first complete edition of Quilter’s songs. Volume two includes a number of his greatest works – such as his only song cycle, To Julia, and his William Blake songs – together with world-première recordings, including all the settings of his own poetry. It is a wonderful selection of English song, which will delight aficionados and novices alike. The booklet gives the complete texts, detailed notes, and part two of the composer’s biography.
