"Pike’s dark roast baritone voice is wonderfully robust yet clear and his articulate pleasure at singing art song in English is a joy to hear ... accompanist Isabelle Trüb is stunningly virtuosic without stealing the limelight ... incredible."
- The WholeNote

"Recording of the Month ... a real pleasure to make the acquaintance of David John Pike on this quite superb recording ... this recital should draw in anyone who cares about British song and the future of British singing. They will thoroughly enjoy themselves, as I did ..."
- MusicWeb International

Centred around Vaughan Williams's Songs of Travel, this collection of English song from rising star baritone David John Pike and pianist Isabelle Trüb brings together three now influential figures in the world of British music: Williams, his contemporary Roger Quilter and the younger Gerald Finzi, who composed Let Us Garlands Bring to mark Williams's 70th birthday. The texts used are drawn from a variety of sources, from traditional "Dorset" songs through settings of Shakespeare, to the central song cycle of poetry by Robert Louis Stevenson.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
