Description: Collectors of this composer's previously issued works will be aware of the close and loving relationship he had with his wife and how devastated he was by her early death and what an effect that had on his later music. It turns out that the majority of his 130+ songs were intimate conversations with her (although he dedicated them to various people). The selection here covers his entire song œuvre, charting a course from carefree playfulness to mature romantic reverie to desolation.
