Product Notes

Early One Morning - Folksongs & Spirituals / Higginbottom, Choir Of New College Composer: Traditional, Percy Aldridge Grainger, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Anonymous, Performer: Nicholas Fuggle, Eamonn Dougan, Philip Cave, Roderick Morris, Orchestra/Ensemble: Oxford New College Choir Conductor: Edward Higginbottom The Oxford choir's tone agreeably combines the clarity of King's, Cambridge, with the warmer, 'continental' sound of neighboring St John's; for all the simplicity of the original folksongs, many of these arrangements (all unaccompanied) require virtuoso control and are effortlessly delivered. Scottish folk will surely forgive the unintentional hilarity of the dialect words in 'The Bonny Bonny Banks of Loch Lomond' being pronounced in impeccable English cathedral cherub style. From this basket of cherries I would pull out 'Linden Lea', a reminder of the idiomatic mastery of Vaughan Williams, to whom, with Cecil Sharp and Percy Grainger, we are all indebted for collecting and preserving so many of these folksongs.
