What could be more welcome than a little repose and respite from the demands of daily life? The works on this album span over 500 years and tell stories of life and love, of tranquility and stillness, some naïve and simple, others infused with complex imagery. From exuberant early works such as Hoyda, hoyda, jolly rutterkin and I am a jolly foster to Will Todd’s sublime Whisper Him my name, Maxwell Davies’ Lullabye for Lucy, Stanford’s glorious The Blue Bird, and a new commission from Roderick Williams, this is truly music to escape to.1 Edward NAYLOR (1867-1934) Vox dicentis 8.262 Sir Peter MAXWELL DAVIES (1934-2016) Lullabye for Lucy 5.213 Anon I am a jolly foster 3.214 Sir James MACMILLAN (b. 1959) Children are a heritage of the Lord 4.205 Bob CHILCOTT (b. 1955) Londonderry Air 4.086 Ciro PINSUTI (1829-88) Good night, good night, beloved 3.517 William CORNYSH (1465-1523) Hoyda, hoyda, jolly rutterkin 4.078 Will TODD (b. 1970) Whisper Him my name 8.509 Sir Charles Villiers STANFORD (1852-1924) The Blue Bird 3.3310.
