Percy Grainger: Folk Music, Avie Records – due for release in April 2017.

Claire Booth (soprano) and Christopher Glynn explore Grainger’s folk music output.  Claire’s and Christopher’s survey, one of the most comprehensive available on the market today, offers a variety of transcriptions of songs found in collections from the British Isles as well as discoveries Grainger heard as he roamed throughout the field. The album concludes with Grainger’s most celebrated piece, English Country Gardens, in which Claire makes a cameo appearance on piano, joining Christopher in a rousing duet.
