James Jolly meets tenor James Gilchrist to discuss the 16 songs comprising ‘A Poet's Love'
James Gilchrist nominated for esteemed award
The sought-after recitalist, James Gilchrist, was greatly praised for his vocal performance. The Scotsman described "a deliciously fresh account" while BBC Music Magazine stated that the singer's "elegant, shapely phrasing soars through it all like a bird" and The Times noted "...as an interpreter of English song, Gilchrist is often in a class by himself".
The nomination is also a great honour for the Scottish label Linn Records for whom this is the second consecutive nomination. At the 2007 Classic FM Gramophone Awards Linn Records artist Dunedin Consort were named winners of the Baroque Vocal category for their celebrated recording of Messiah.
