Respighi Cinque Liriche and songs by
James Francis Brown, Peter Fribbins,
Richard Hageman and Kerry Woodward
Alice Bishop - Soprano and Simon Marlow - Piano
This is a lovely and unusual collection of songs.
The Respighi songs have rarely been recorded. They are beautiful and extraordinary in the range of colours in the music which mirror the texts so beautifully.
The Debussy songs and the Hageman songs are a little more familiar and very beautiful.
Full details of the texts of the songs are available in the pdf file available below.
The CD comes in an eco-friendly, shrink wrapped cardboard sleeve and is £10 plus £1 p&p.
