A collection of choral works by Peter Warlock


Terry Blain - BBC Music magazine, August 2014 ****

Seven premiere recordings here, in a programme offering a genuine expansion in our understanding of Warlock. The Full Heart, in eight parts, is particularly striking. Gorgeous sound; highly engaging, dedicated performances.


Philip Reed, Choir and Organ Magazine, July 2014

It’s a very enjoyable programme ... Campbell and her chamber-sized choir Blossom Street give committed readings of this repertoire, which time and again reveals Warlock’s highly attuned sensitivity to text. 


Steven Whitehead, Cross Rhythms, March 2014

Everything in this collection is enjoyable. Credit for this must go to Hilary Campbell and her Blossom Street singers who sound lovely. Five of the 20 tracks are world premiere recordings so dedicated followers of Peter Warlock will be keen to hear this. Those who know him only for "Bethlehem Down" will enjoy making his better acquaintance and all who have an interest in English choral music will appreciate this digital-only release.


Brian Wilson, MusicWeb Internation, April 2014

I’m happy to have the familiar here, such as Bethlehem Down, for the sake of so much that is unfamiliar – there are six world premiere recordings here… This being Peter Warlock, there’s nothing prim and proper – The Shrouding of the Duchess of Malfi is really spooky – and the performances match the music. The recording is good, too.
