Elegy: Songs for Baritone and Piano
Featuring Paul Whelan with David Harper

This recording features a recital of English art song performed by bass-baritone Paul Whelan with pianist David Harper. The programme also includes the deeply felt Elegy by New Zealand composer Douglas Lilburn, set to words by Alistair Campbell. Having performed with many leading UK orchestras, this recording showcases Whelan's more intimate repertory.
