Cambridge Singers : The Sprig of Thyme : 1 CD : John Rutter : 517

Cambridge Singers : The Sprig of Thyme

"For children growing up in postwar England as I did, traditional songs still form a common musical currency. These songs brought me delight and pleasure then, and they still do now, though pleasure has become tinged with nostalgia because, for the most part, they are forgotten and gone from our lives, perhaps forever. This album is an affectionate tribute to their composers and poets; a few were renowned, most were obscure or unknown, but the songs they created were famous, and I remember them fondly." - John Rutter

Songlist: The Bold Grenadier, The Keel Row, The Willow Tree, The Sprig Of Thyme, Down By The Sally Gardens, The Cuckoo, I Know Where I'm Going, Willow Song, O Can You Sew Cushions, The Miller Of Dee, Im Herbst, The Girl I Left Behind Me, O Waly, Waly, The British Grenadiers, Golden Slumbers, Dashing Away With The Smoothing Iron, The Lark In The Clear Air, She's Like The Swallow, Searching For The Lambs, The Dark Eyed Sailor, The Spring Time Of The Year, Just As The Tide Was Flowing, The Lover' Ghost, Wassail Song, She Moved Through The Fair

Rarely heard works by English composer/conductor John Rutter are highlighted on this highly acclaimed disc by the St. Charles Singers.

All of the Rutter arrangements are accompanied by soloists from the Metropolis Chamber Orchestra. The remainder of the recording is an assortment of American and British folk song arrangements. "Flower of Beauty," is especially beautiful. This recording includes some great singing from a fine American choir.

Songlist: Tell Me Where is Fancy Breed, There Is a Garden in Her Face, The Urchins' Dance, Riddle Song, Midnight's Bell, The Bellman's Song, Flower of Beauty, The Keel Row, The Turtle Dove, Black Is the Color of My True Love's Hair, Lamorna, Black Sheep, Down By The Sally Gardens, He's Gone Away, Swansea Town, The Oak and The Ash , Early One Morning, I Know Where I'm Going, Londonderry Air, Shenandoah
