Peter Warlock's The Curlew, a cycle of settings of poems by William Butler Yeats (accompanied in the booklet by some great curlew artwork), also has a string quartet accompaniment, this time with English horn, and the program is rounded off by a contemporary work, Jonathan Dove's The End, for string quartet, English horn, and flute. In every way it seems to pick up where the earlier music has left off, and the whole program has a pleasing unity even as it picks up some very unusual works

Ralph Vaughan Williams Composer. Nicholas Daniel (ob). Jonathan Dove Composer. Britten Sinfonia (Members of). Jaqueline Shave Director. Peter Warlock Composer. Author: Alexandra Coghlan. VAUGHAN WILLIAMS On Wenlock Edge. (The) Curlew. Selected comparisons. Padmore has recorded On Wenlock Edge already, and while both this version and 2008’s with the Schubert Ensemble easily stand up to competition from Andrew Kennedy and James Gilchrist, Padmore can’t quite better his younger self here. The earlier disc has greater warmth and greater heft at moments of climax, while the newer has a more sinewy clarity and tonal flexibility in the quieter moments.

As with On Wenlock Edge Padmore’s strong sense of vocal characterisation, his ear for nuance and colour - derived from the text, it needs to be noted, and not applied from without - ensure that the music’s power emerges unsullied by portentousness. Nicholas Daniel is the outstanding cor anglais player. In lesser hands and voices, The Curlew can seem attritional. When the voice tends to the lugubrious, or is not well pitched, or when it sounds gestural or generic one’s heart sinks and the mind wanders. The stresses on certain words - ‘remembered’ and ‘suspended’ in particular - show the level of Dove’s sensitivity setting polysyllables and the use to which they can musically be put.

Harmonia Mundi HMU80 7566 (73' DDD/DSD T. .Three quintessentially British song-cycles from Padmore. The silvery greys of 'On Wenlock Edge' (finding light and space under violinist Jacqueline Shave's direction) find dialogue in the inkier textures of 'I wander by the edge' a monochrome tapestry of musical shading. A premiere recording, the Dove unfolds in gull-like sighs for solo flute and oboe over a rocking ostinato in the strings-the sea, carrying man to his final harbour.
