John Clare, probably the best poet ever to walk this earth, has been woefully neglected for many, many years! On this CD, it sounds as if David Shaw-Parker was born to read this poetry. It is absolutely brilliant from start to finish. My only criticism is that for such a hugely prolific poet (over 3,000 poems), Naxos have severely under-represented his work. It runs at just over an hour with only 24 poems. It really should have been a double CD!!
