Description: Although it only contains one song not on the Naxos release we offered last August (08M063), that does make this "The Complete Butterworth Songbook" as it is titled. It was a Gramophone Editor's Choice last June and, for what it's worth, there is a short piece of film (playable on computer) showing Butterworth dancing (!). No texts. Mark Stone (baritone), Stephen Barlow (piano).
