Description: Delius' songs are hardly well-known and there are plenty here which are even less-known than most. Done in fine, Hyperion style with notes before the texts of each song, which expand on the two pages of notes which begin the finely-produced, two-color, 32-page booklet, this is a deluxe presentation supported by the Delius Society and the John Ireland Trust which will warm the hearts of loyal Delians. Texts included. Mark Stone (baritone), Stephen Barlow (piano).
