Album Description

What could be more welcome than a little repose and respite from the demands of daily life? The works on this album tell stories of life and love, of tranquillity and stillness, some naïve and simple, others infused with complex imagery.

This beautiful album features a stunning selection of music spanning over 500 years. From exuberant early works such as 'Hoyda, hoyda, jolly rutterkin' and 'I am a jolly foster' to Will Todd’s sublime 'Whisper Him my name', Maxwell Davies’ 'Lullabye for Lucy', Stanford’s glorious 'The Blue Bird', and a new commission from Roderick Williams, this is truly music to escape to.
