Description: From Vaughan Williams’ enchanting textures, via Bax and Bridge’s harmonic surprises, to Delius’s return to his roots at the end of his life - this is a rich collection of shimmering gems from composers who were part of a new ‘English Style’ that blended traditional lyricism with wider influences from Europe and Scandinavia. Gerald Peregrine (cello), Antony Ingham (piano).
