Good Night Beloved


This beautiful album features a stunning selection of music spanning over 500 years. From exuberant early works such as ‘Hoyda, hoyda, jolly rutterkin’ and ‘I am a jolly foster’ to Will Todd’s sublime ‘Whisper Him my name‘, Maxwell Davies’ ‘Lullabye for Lucy’, Stanford’s glorious ‘The Blue Bird’, and a new commission from Roderick Williams, this is truly music to escape to.
