'Gilchrist sings wonderfully while pianist Tilbrook is with him every step of the way...This is a terrific production from Linn.' 4 stars Audiophile Audition

'Gilchrist is a greatly sensitive interpreter, his tone liquid yet urgent, his diction immaculate and august, his choices admirable.' The Sunday Times


The greatly sought-after tenor, James Gilchrist, continues his highly acclaimed exploration of British song with his new recording of Benjamin Britten works. His 2010 recording of Leighton Earth, Sweet Earth...(laudes terrae) and Britten Winter Words was called 'outstandingly accomplished' by Gramophone.

This is the fifth recording in a collection which has embraced works by Gerald Finzi, Kenneth Leighton, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Ivor Gurney, Arthur Bliss and Peter Warlock and has uncovered the beautiful songs of Muriel Herbert.

As The Times stated: 'As an interpreter of English song, Gilchrist is often in a class by himself'.

,,Bei den 'Holy Sonnets of John Donne' beweist die herausragenden Fähigkeiten Gilchrists...was für herrliche Schwebungen auf ‚holy discontent‘, was für eine feine Farbführung, etwa auf ‚crucified‘.''

The Guardian
'Gilchrist's rather English sound fits music that was conceived for Pears's equally English style very well, whether in the unbuttoned declarations of love of the Michelangelo songs, or the much darker introspection of the Donne Sonnets.'
