“Whether or not you have any interest in English song, if you like exceptionally thoughtful music-making, this album is for you. Rudge’s voice is golden, rich, and even; her diction crystal clear, and her phrasing superb. Baillieu’s playing is warm and supportive. Outstanding performances of every piece; I loved every minute of it.”2015 American Record Guide
“A whole range of 20th century English song from Novello to Gurney in a finely crafted debut…Kathryn Rudge has a lovely warm yet focussed mezzo-soprano voice and she sings with a combination of line and superb diction.In many ways this is quite a daring disc. I can think of few programmes which combine music by Ivor Gurney, Frank Bridge, Ivor Novello and Haydn Wood.” Robert Hugill 2015.
