This excellent 1987 recording originally known as "James Rainbird - Sings Music For A While ..." has been due a CD issue for a long time and finally it is here! The track selection is a refreshing change from the usual rather tired collection of tracks on many treble soloist CDs. James' performance is also very different to most of these, giving away his musical background. He sings in an expressive style with great variations in dynamism, going from calmer measured singing to confidently filling the sympathetic acoustic to great effect.
The track listing is as follows: 1. Come Again (John Dowland) 2. Fine Knacks For Ladies (John Dowland) 3. What Then Is Love (Philip Rosseter) 4. Prepare Thyself Zion (J.S. Bach) 5. Man Is For Woman Made (Henry Purcell) 6. Music For A While (Henry Purcell) 7. Star Vicino (Salvator Rosa) 8. The Revival (Michael Stuckey) 9. A Ballad From "Paul Bunyan" (Benjamin Britten)Four Songs Of The Sea Op.1 (Roger Quilter): 10. I Have A Friend 11. The Seabird 12. Moonlight 13. By The Sea14. The Holy Boy (John Ireland)15. New Year Carol (Benjamin Britten)16. A Ballad From "Paul Bunyan" (Benjamin Britten)17. Sure On This Shining Night Op.13 No.3 (Samuel Barber)18. Hommage A Chopin No.2 (Andrzej Panufnik)
The CD is worth every penny for track 17 alone!
