Five Rossetti Songs

The first of these settings, "Song", was written some time way back in the 70s and the others added over a number of years. The poems are by Christina Rossetti except for "Sudden Light", which is by her brother Dante Gabriel Rossetti.

After a number of performances by Jane Lofthouse in the 90s they became somewhat neglected until given renewed life in 2010, entirely as a result of the enthusiasm and encouragement of Maria Heseltine, with whom these performances were recorded during an inspiring rehearsal.
