"The recordings serve the music beautifully and anyone who cares about British Music of the period should snap this recording up without fail"
(MusicWeb Nov 2007)

Music for voice has always been an important component of Maw's creative output. He first came to notice with a Nocturne for mezzo-soprano and orchestra, and it was the thrilling Scenes and Arias for three female voices and large orchestra that unmistakably announced the arrival of a strong new personality in British music.
