Release of Lyrita's CD, Songs of William Busch

August 6, 2022

I'm delighted to announce the release of this disc, recorded at Wyastone Studio on the English/Welsh border during lockdown, which has been a true labour of love.

The result of several years working with William's daughter, Julia, to ignite interest in this collection of his songs, many unpublished, I hope that the disc will finally allow people to appreciate them, alongside works by his contemporaries and friends. It's always a pleasure to work with John Reid, my regular accompanist for over 20 years, who plays beautifully for all 3 singers on this disc. 

As Holofernes, Diana Moore combined military grandeur and suave seductiveness into a superb portrait of a warrior at play on the fields of love.
