Five Mystical Songs - Five Tudor portraits, S Walker, mezzo-soprano - H Herford, baryton - Guildford Choral Society - The Philharmonia Orchestra, dir. H Davan Wetton. A lovely performance of RVW's "Five Mystical Songs". Henry Herford is a full-bodied baritone with excellent diction which is hard to find in recordings of this cycle. The orchestra and fresh-sounding choir are splendid as well - it's a pity they weren't a bit more forward in the recorded balance. The "Five Tudor Portraits" take a few repeated listenings to fully appreciate.

Vaughan Williams completed the Five Mystical Songs, together with the Sea Symphony, in 1911. He was by then almost forty years of age and had but a few years earlier (1908) studied with Maurice Ravel in Paris. The first performance of the Five Tudor Portraits under the baton of the composer earned wide praise from the critics of the day. Astra Desmond gave ‘the most delicate picture of a drunken hag at the famous brewing’, noted The Times; ‘everyone concerned caught the spirit of the thing, and the composer conducted a brilliant first performance’. Edwin Evans in The Musical Times reported that he had rarely seen an English audience ‘so relieved of concert-room inhibitions’.
