Classical Music CD - Flaming June
English songs and music for summer
The intensity and the passion of the cover painting, 'Flaming June' by Frederic, Lord Leighton, is matched by sultry early twentieth century English art songs and by classic and rare recordings of some of the finest English orchestral music in a programme created to evoke the smouldering intensity of a fine English summer.
