When Laszlo Heltay founded the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields Chorus in 1975, he set the standards for the fresh, clear tone now admired throughout the choral world. Grammy-winning conductor Richard Hickox leads the Chorus in a selection of 12 "Works for Unaccompanied Chorus" by the beloved Australian composer/arranger Percy Grainger. Grainger wrote original pieces, and arranged folk songs that he sought out in the English and Scottish countryside and around the world. Included are "My Love's in Germanie," "Six Dukes Went A-fishin'," "O Mistress Mine," "Mary Thomson," "Early One Morning," "Irish Tune from County Derry," "Agincourt Song," "Australian Up-Country Song, "Recessional," "At Twilight," "The Gypsy's Wedding Day" and "Mo Nighean Dubh." Wonderful, authentic folk songs, beautifully sung by a top-drawer chorus!
