Songs of Love and War

Songs of Love and War drew together several themes and projects,
old and new. The main spur for this disc, however, was a
programme on the musical world of the Pre-Raphaelites, which, as a result of our
appearing on a radio programme in Paris as guests of Felicity Lott, we were asked
by the Musée d’Orsay to create.

We were delighted that Malcolm managed to
squeeze this event into his schedule, and together we rolled out a number of new
songs, some of which we all agreed might sit well together on an album.

Into the Paris mix were added, amongst others, Randy Newman, Tom Jobim,
Michael Jackson, the Flying Pickets, Georges Brassens, the celebrated lament for
Kennedy from BBC TV’s That Was the Week that Was, Frank Bridge (that quiet
giant, so marked by the Great War), and the most poignant chronicler in music of
war, Francis Poulenc.
