Brazilian valses that swing
Grace Williams: '... it is in the solo songs, more than anything else, that her musical personality found its natural expression...melody in the widest sense provided the initial impulse'. Malcolm Boyd. In the catalogue of her works the songs take up two-thirds of the list. Music Web. Grace Williams commented, 'I love the sound of Welsh poetry, particularly the mediaeval poetry, and have set some of it to music. The difficulty lies in getting it sung, because of singers' inability (or unwillingness to cope with the language - even among Welsh singers.' No such concerns hinder baritone Jeremy Huw Williams, who proves a passionate advocate in both English and Welsh of the composer's shamefully neglected art songs and folk song arrangements, strongly supported by Paula Fan (piano and harpsichord) and Rachel Kay Green (harp). BBC Music Magazine. 'This release demonstrates once again the enterprise of Lorelt records in the promotion of music by female composers whose work has never had enough exposure.' Music Web.
