Four Rossetti Songsfor Voice (Baritone or Mezzo Soprano) and Wind Ensemble

Basford, Daniel

The Four Rossetti Songs were conceived as a sequel to Basford's large-scale cantata Night Journey. However, unlike Night Journey each of the four songs can be performed separartely. Whilst owing much to the gentle song-writing skills of English composes Vaughan Williams and Ivor Gurney, these very individual pieces integrate perfectly the timbre and colour of the wind ensemble into the vocal line so exquisitely expressed in these beautiful verses by Dante Gabriel and Christina Rossetti. A perfect addition to the voice with wind instruments repertoire.
