BUTTERWORTH / GURNEY / VAUGHAN WILLIAMS

Most Grand To Die

George Butterworth: Bredon Hill and other songs; Six Songs from ‘A Shropshire Lad’

Ivor Gurney: Four Songs (‘Songs from the trenches’); The Twa Corbies; Sleep

Ralph Vaughan Williams: Songs of Travel

James Rutherford (baritone),

Eugene Asti (piano)

James Rutherford, with Eugene Asti at the piano, here records his first disc for BIS, presenting a programme of works from composers all influenced greatly by the First World War.

George Butterworth’s A Shropshire Lad takes texts from A.E. Housman’s poems of young men facing death.

Vaughan Williams turned to poems by Robert Louis Stevenson, for his Songs of Travel, a set of nine songs in which the wanderer-narrator philosophically accepts the mixture of joys and sorrows offered to him along the road.

Gurney – the youngest of the three composers – was also a poet, and in Severn Meadows expressed his longing for home in both text and music. Severn Meadows was composed during Gurney’s time in the trenches.
