Description: 17 vocal works with piano or chamber orchestra accompaniment composed between 1886 and 1913. Published in 1886 and receiving their first recordings in English are the five Op.3 pieces which blend images of the natural world with themes of lost love. The five Lieder exalt in an emotional palette that ranges from tenderness to trenchant emotion. Three songs from 1913, composed during the period of Smyth’s suffragette activity deftly combine the political and personal. Texts and translations included. Lucy Stevens (contralto), Elizabeth Marcus (piano).
