Description: In a spirit of competition with (and sense of inferiority to) German musical culture, Parry chose to address the genre of song with twelve volumes of English Lyrics, written between 1874 and his death. This volume contains songs from eight of the Lyrics volumes as well as five Shakespeare Sonnets, four of which, ironically, were set in German translation with an eye to that market. Texts included. Susan Gritton (soprano), James Gilchrist (tenor), Roderick Williams (baritone), Andrew West (piano).
