The human voice an incredibly beautiful and expressive instrument, and when multiple voices are unified in tone and purpose a powerful statement is realized. No wonder people have always wanted to sing in a communal context-a desire apparently stemming from a deeply rooted human instinct.

Frederick Delius and Arnold Bax both made significant contributions to the partsong repertoire, each leaving a compelling testament to his highly individual creative personality. Deliuss earlier choral songs are nostalgic for the worlds of Mendelssohn, Schumann and Grieg, while the brooding contours of On Craig Ddu results in one of his most remarkable creations. The allure of landscapes and elemental forces was powerful for both composers; the subtle tensions and gorgeously layered harmonies of Baxs settings also evoking historical remoteness and other-worldly enchantment.
