Description: For transcription fans, since we offered the first recording of the Beamish setting of an Old English poem - powerfully atmospheric, brooding and angry, though progressing toward a sense of prayerful optimism, with a vividness of the imagery underlined by the composer's use of surging wave effects, bird calls, and bell sounds - back in June 2011 (06M092). Texts included. Willard White (bass-baritone), Trio Apaches.
