Description: Recordings of Warlock's choral works are rarer than those of his songs and the former range from hymns to the Virgin to carols, many spiced with his own "melody of chords" and typically tangy harmonies. The compression of the notes is amazing: every item covered in two pages but they assume substantial aquaintance with the composer and his circle. And texts really would have been anything but a luxury - even if only on-line. No texts. Rachel Haworth (organ - 8 songs), The Carice Singers; George Parris.
