Various : Mary Wiegold, soprano

14 short songs drawn from the Songbook, an ever-increasing collection of works written for Wiegold and the Composers Ensemble

"Like a modern-day codex. Should nothing survive from the previous decade of British music save this, scholars would still be able to form a reliable picture of the diverse compositional activity of those years."
Tempo 1992
