ABRSM Singing 2009-20173678
ABRSM Singing from 2018678 

Quilter was one of England’s finest artsong composers. Compiled to mark the 50th anniversary of the composer’s death, these two volumes gather together 18 of Quilter’s songs and duets. In these songs he demonstrates an extraordinary skill in setting English poetry and shows what can be achieved in the miniature form.

These fabulous new volumes are a must for all singers and Quilter afficionados! In addition to well-known favourites such as Now sleeps the crimson petal and Love’s Philosophy, it contains several works which have been unavailable for many years, as well as offering three previously unpublished songs for the first time.

Available for both high and low voice.

"Singers will enjoy Quilter's exemplary word-setting and sense of line, while for pianists the writing could hardly be more grateful, especially in the lingering codas. Indeed, a joy."
