There are ten songs mostly from the 1920s, a golden decade for the publication of English art songs, together with two songs by Michael Head, which, though not published till the 1930s, follow the same tradition. Finally, there is the group of songs by Sir Richard Rodney Bennett, which were published in 1995.

"...Connolly and Martineau make an impressive double act. The former has performed this material live to glowing reviews, and you can hear why. Her voice has such a pleasing texture - it is womanly rather than girlish; velvet rather than satin - and her sense of drama is never overstated. She excels, therefore, in capturing the masculine and melancholy of
Britten's lullabies and Bennett's brittle, unpredictable scenes from a long marriage. Martineau responds throughout with characteristically flawless, subtle and intuitive accompaniment."
 Classic FM Magazine

Sarah Connolly received excellent reviews for her recital performance of English songs on 11 April 2011 at the Alice Tully Hall in New York. The New York Times wrote: ‘Ms Connolly's voice was strong and steady through its range, velvety, but with a soft, subtle graininess that gave weight and presence to even her most ethereal floated notes.'

Here the mezzo-soprano, accompanied by Malcolm Martineau on piano, performs four arrangements by Benjamin Britten: three folk songs and one song from an early choral work. These complement the recent Britten CD, on which Connolly performs the cantata Phaedra as well as A Charm of Lullabies.

Next come eleven songs from the 1920s, which is considered the golden decade for English art songs. Among the highlights are ‘By a Bierside', Ivor Gurney's stark reflection on death, written in the World War I trenches, and Herbert Howells's ‘King David' which has long been considered a masterpiece. Howells himself said: ‘I am prouder to have written King David than almost anything else of mine.'
