The Power Of Love



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Alice Coote, one of the most distinctive mezzo-sopranos of today, makes her recital debut on Hyperion with pianist Graham Johnson, a stalwart of the label and tireless explorer of vocal repertoire. The Power of Love creates what Johnson describes as a 'pageant of English song and poetry'. It's a journey through half a century of song, surveying not just human love but love of nature and even of money. Some of the most touching pieces here involve the loss of love through death, not least Ivor Gurney's Lights Out and Gustav Holst's Betelgeuse. There's serenity, too, in mellifluous settings by Roger Quilter, while high spirits are supplied by Maude Valerie White's The Spring has come and Warlock's sardonic Queen Anne, which includes the immortal lines 'I am Queen Anne, of whom 'tis said / I'm chiefly fam'd for being dead'.
