Description: These four albums are of live English Poetry and Song Society concert performances made by the now defunct Dunelm label for private use and are now offered to the broader collecting public for the first time. They contain works by major as well as unfamiliar composers. These recordings were made on portable recording equipment and with less than ideal microphone placement and are not to our usual modern standard. However they contain fine performances and many very unfamiliar and exquisite songs, which will delight any lover of late-Romantic English vocal music. Rec. 2006. Texts included. Stephen Foulkes (baritone), David Bednall (piano).
