SOMM Recordings is delighted to announce a thrilling first collaboration between long-time SOMM stablemates, baritone Roderick Williams and the Coull Quartet, joined by tenor James Gilchrist and soprano Sophie Bevan. With six first recordings, On This Shining Night is a ravishing recital focusing revealingly on a 20th-century phenomenon: works for voice and string quartet. It takes its title from a James Agate setting by Samuel Barber (whose masterly Dover Beach is also heard), here in a sublime arrangementby Roderick Williams. Williams also provides arrangements of Barbers Sleep Now and three Frederick Delius pieces from his Seven Songs from the Norwegian: the evocative Twilight Fancies, vivacious Young Venevil and exotic I-Brasil. They serve, as Robert Matthew-Walkers erudite booklet notes observe, as companions to 11 songs by Deliuss close friend and associate, Peter Warlock, including the gentle intimacy of Corpus Christi, the mini-cantata Sorrows Lullaby, and unique free-recitative of My gostly vader.Composed for Williams and the Coull Quartet, Sally Beamishs five-part Tree Carols offer striking, variegated settings of poems by Fiona Sampson in their premiere recording.
