English Song Weekend, Ludlow, June 2010

“Elizabeth Watts gave an outstanding evening recital in St Laurence’s Church. Accompanied by Burnside, “I Sowed the Seeds of Love” moved from Gurney in Elizabethan mode to the mystic borderland with folksong inhabited by Rebecca Clarke and Vaughan Williams. Watts’s lustrous soprano is able to meet every expressive demand made of it, from the impassioned fear of Purcell’s The Blessed Virgin’s Expostulation to her richly imagined re-creation of Elizabeth Maconchy’s take on Traherne in Sun, Moon and Stars.”
