A treasure trove for those who enjoy the lyrical English pastoral tradition.

It becomes clear that Gibbs is yet another English composer whose music is inexplicably forgotten today. If you like Vaughan Williams, Bax and other contemporary composers you will enjoy this recording.

It catches Janet Baker at her glorious best singing some of the finest English songs in the repertoire. They are performed with such beautiful and sensitive phrasing as you would expect from Janet Baker, and this album is a must have.
