Format: Audio CD
Any CD with Parry's Songs of Farewell on is always worth a quick listen, and this one is particularly special for three reasons. First, the Parry songs are delicious. Second, it's also got the Vaughan Williams Mass in G Minor, and this recording recently won Radio 3's 'Building a Library CD review' of all the current VW Mass in G minor recordings - as judged by Jeremy Summerley. and third, it's also got Frank Bridge's 'A Prayer'accompanied by Jeremy Filsell's masterful organ playing. It's the kind of music I can never resist singing along to, and I agree with Mr Summerley - a great blend of singing and a wonderful listen. Make yourself a cup of tea, sit down, put your feet up and enjoy it!

I really do not know how I have managed to live my three score years and ten without hearing or knowing anything about these songs but thanks to Prince Charles I bought this CD and find myself absolutely entranced by its beauty. There is no doubt that these six songs are Parry's masterpiece and prove him to be a composer of extraordinary depth and insight. Written at the end of his life when he realized that it was drawing to its close, he sublimely leads us towards its acceptance. This music rings in my head all day and this recording is thoroughly recommended.

Not sure you can find a better performance of the Parry Songs of Farewell on CD than this, and as a bonus, the CD also includes the wonderful Mass in G Minor by Vaughan Williams. Superbly sung, deeply emotional musical direction and intimately recorded. Even the Frank Bridge is worth a listen!
