Stone’s survey of the songs of John Ireland reaches the halfway mark with works published between 1912 and 1928, setting words by Shakespeare, Rossetti and Emily Brontë, as well as his contemporary poets James Vila Blake, Ernest Dowson and Arthur Symons. Stone and Kynoch catch the essentially English nostalgia of the haunting, wistful songs with robust humour in the folksy, rollicking numbers. (The Sunday Times)
