04 - Summer 2008 - New accompaniment MP3s
Since our last newsletter, among others by Mendelssohn, Brahms, Schumann and Schubert, we have added...

Two favourite songs by Beethoven: 'Adelaide' and 'Ich Liebe Dich' in high, mezzo and low versions.

Gounod's 'Jewel Song' from Faust; several additions to our Fauré list including the wonderful, 'Notre Amour' and captivating, 'Les Roses D'Ispahan'.

Songs by George Butterworth (whose tragic early death in action in 1916 deprived England of a potentially great composer).

Several of the Mörike and Eichendorff songs by Hugo Wolf and a double volume collection of Mozart Lieder: Volume 1: 1781 - 1785 and Volume 2: 1787 - 1791

French composers are well represented in our latest-additions list this time. Apart from Fauré, there are more songs by Gounod, Massenet, Chausson, Duparc, and Saint-Saens.

We've also included some traditional songs as well as parlour song favourites like When You and I were Young Maggie by J A Butterfield and the lovely duet by Sir Julius Benedict, The Moon Hath Raised Her Lamp Above. Speaking of duets, we've got Rossini's Duetto Buffo di Due Gatti too fors any ladies who are feeling a little 'kittenish'.

For those of us looking forward to Christmas choral programmes (- never too soon!) there are two Peter Warlock favourites, Balulalow and Bethlehem Down as well as Berlioz's L'Adieu des Bergers - The Shepherd's Farewell - now with individually supported vocal lines). Finally, can't go without mentioning one of our favourites - Graham Peel's wistfully beautiful In Summertime on Bredon...

We hope you enjoy singing to them as much as we enjoyed recording them for you.
