    The charismatic duo of James Gilchrist and Anna Tilbrook continue their exploration of English Song in My Beloved is Mine. This new recording explores the song cycles of Benjamin Britten, including 'On This Island', 'The Holy Sonnets of John Donne', 'Seven Sonnets of Michelangelo' and 'Canticle I 'My Beloved is Mine''. 

    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".
