  • James Gilchrist tenor
  • Anna Tilbrook piano

A meditation on Time from the admired tenor and his regular pianist partner, described by Gramophone as ‘an outstandingly accomplished and sensitive modern combination.’ Of one of their other discs, BBC Music Magazine has suggested that ‘the performers' art really does conceal art: Gilchrist's tenor skilfully voicing a hushed wonder, and Tilbrook's fingers, rid of sentimentalising cliché, moving with the fleet freedom of air and birdsong.’
