The collected songs for voice and piano of aclaimed choral conductor and arranger Stephen Wilkinson. This album includes settings of Marvell's poem The Garden, a joyful expression of horticultural delights that cleverly combines an almost atonal idiom with elements of a Gilbert and Sullivan patter song. The title work The Sunlight on the Garden is a setting of the MacNeice poem of the same name, and evokes darker moods of wartime by the use of a constantly evolving harmonic palette. \"In the field of choral music, Stephen Wilkinson is a genius.\" (Yorkshire Post) \"Simply a great choral conductor\" (South China Times)
\"No praise could overstate the merits of Stephen Wilkinson’s direction\" (The Guardian).
