Brahmsian in outlook yet flavoured with Irish flair and imagination, these songs reveal hidden aspects of a composer whose reputation, in all its diversity, is still to be fully revalued. One complete song-cycle, A Fire of Turf, is included, together with Three Ditties of Olden Times. Three Songs to Poems by Robert Bridges, Songs of Faith Set II, The Clown’s Songs from Twelfth Night and 20 other individual songs.
