The English Song Series Vol. 2

Originally released as part of The English Song Series on the Collins Classics label, this recording explores the vocal works of one of the pioneers of English song. Arthur Somervell was the first composer to set A.E. Housman’s A Shropshire Lad. His setting of William Blake’s Songs of Innocence shows his ease at composing for children, while his familiarity today rests on his setting of Tennyson’s Maud.

The Shropshire Lad
1 O mistress mine
2 Orpheus with his lute
3 Sweet Kate
4 The shepherd
5 The blossom
6 The lamb
7 Nurse's Song
8 Birds in the high Hall-garden
9 Go not, happy day
10 Come into the garden, Maud
11 James Lee's Wife speaks at the window
12 By the fireside
13 In the doorway
14 On the cliff
15 Among the rocks
16 The Bargain
17 Fain would I change that note
18 Shepherd's cradle song
19 Come to me in my dreams
20 Dainty little maiden
21 When Spring returns
22 Lovliest of trees
23 When I was one-and-twenty
24 There pass the careless people
25 In summer-time on Bredon
26 The street sounds to a soldier's tread
27 On the idle hill of summer
28 White in the moon the long road lies
29 Think no more lad, laugh, be jolly
30 Into my heart an air that kills
31 The lads in their hundreds
