Description: Bush made a significant contribution to English song, while Horovitz's modest but equally varied contribution includes Lady Macbeth, a powerful, harmonically astringent scena, as well as witty cabaret items and one song which, in its late-Romantic nostalgia, reveals his Viennese roots. Bush's Cuisine Provencale has elements of an operatic drama, while the cycle Yesterday enshrines ballad simplicity and deft word-painting. Mirabile Misterium sets medieval texts which explore various types of ecstasy, and archy at the zoo demonstrates Bush's zest and wit. No texts. Susanna Fairbairn (soprano), Matthew Schellhorn (piano).
