About this Recording

Collection: From Her to Him

‘I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach’. The eloquence of lovers is celebrated in the rich and sensuous collection—the love of women for men. Heloïse, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Katherine Mansfield, George Sands and others express their very real passion intensely—as, in fiction, does Juliet for her Romeo, Jane Eyre for her Rochester and Catherine for her Heathcliffe. With the music of Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky, Puccini, Elgar, and more, here is some of the most tender love prose and poetry in literature.
