Description: The first all-Parry song disc since December of 1998 duplicates 12 items on that older Hyperion release but we offer for the other 15 since Parry's skill in word-setting produced the font of English song composition that later provided the much-better known works of Ireland, Bridge and later generations. Texts included. Ailish Tynan (soprano), Susan Bickley (mezzo), William Dazeley (baritone), Iain Burnside (piano).
