On the Sorrow of War - CD

By Rachel Tolmie

Regular price $25.00 Sale


1The title of this CD was inspired by the story of HMAS Sydney and her final sea-battle with the German raider HSK Kormoranon November 19, 1941. This poignant and most magnificent writing by Peter Webb, for cor anglais, voice and orchestra, concludes the recording.  While in contrast, more light-hearted works by Peter Webb, Paul Paviour, Brett M McKern and John Martin for cor anglais and piano are performed by Rachel Tolmie and pianist John Martin.
