This is the fourth disc from Albion Records, part of the Vaughan Williams Society. Albion Records Ltd, a not-for-profit record label, is dedicated to recording rare 20th century English classical music, concentrating on Ralph Vaughan Williams.

These vocal works were composed from 1895 and 1954 showing Vaughan Williams lifelong affection for the human voice. Recorded in the approximate order of composition this recording shows how much Vaughan Williams adapted his style over about sixty years.
