Roger Quilter (1877-1953) is one of England's finest artsong composers and his songs have remained firmly in the vocal repertoire since their appearance in the first half of the 20th century. In these songs he demonstrates an extraordinay skill in setting English poetry and shows what can be achieved within a miniature form.

In addition to well-known favourites such as Now sleeps the crimson petal and Loves Philosophy, it contains several works which have been unavailable for many years, as well as offering three previously unpublished songs for the first time.
