Reviews
 

Stone and Barlow are wonderfully matched and keenly aware of how to bring out the inner life in these songs…these performances perfectly balance all of the elements integral to Delius’s world… the recorded sound is so naturally balanced that you stop thinking about it just a few minutes into listening. Stone and Barlow should feel very proud of what they have accomplished here. This fills a major gap in the catalogue. (Fanfare)

With fresh-minted accompaniments from Stephen Barlow, Stone proves an expert guide not just by uncovering little-known manuscripts, but by investing Delius’s songs with verve and variety of mood, in part through his intelligent diction – **** (Financial Times)

Rich in nuance, sensual contrasts of colour and range of textual expression… collectively eloquent and ideally committed to extracting the essence of each song – **** (Classic FM Magazine)

Stone’s engagingly natural style and immaculate diction are supported by Barlow’s sympathetic playing (Sunday Times)
