Overview

These settings, breathtaking in their simplicity and beauty, reflect and confirm the wide view of English music in the first half of this century: the selections, by Delius, Holst, Howells, Ireland, Vaughan Williams, and Warlock—and others—uniquely give the choral sound and the imagery of nature. English Pastoral Partsongs nicely compliments other Oxford secular choral anthologies: English Romantic Partsongs, The English Glee, and English Madrigals.
