David Denton
David's Review Corner, November 2013

Had there been a top twenty classical recording chart in the first three decades of the 19th century, John McCormack would have usually taken the number one spot. The present CD covers the period 1923–4 when his voice was in prime condition, and mixes popular ballads with the lieder of Schubert and Brahms…his Lieder, particularly the extract from Wolff’s Morike Lieder is excellent by any standard. How Ward Marston casts his spell over the originals is quite remarkable, even to ‘modern’ ears. © 2013 David’s Review Corner
