This is the world premiere recording of John Bevan Baker's 'Songs of Courtship', performed by the renowned Hebrides Ensemble and Consort of Voices. + The disc represents a unique opportunity for exploring the fascinating, uncharted waters of 20th c. British music. + Mr. Bevan Baker set ‘Songs of Courtship’ to music in 1992 for the Black Isle Singers. + Written by Mao Shih in the 7th c. BC, the poems were translated from the Ancient Chinese in 1946 by Arthur Waley. + ‘I don't think it too fanciful to hear Baker's love of Scotland and its countryside and coastlands throughout these pieces.’ (Gramophone)
