    These folk songs on Celtic themes have the wonderful Warlock touch of wizardly harmony and sensitivity. They are contrasting pieces with varying moods, contemplative, sparkling, intense. The final folk song no. 5 concludes the series with an extended reworking of a simple theme, giving the effect of a journey through...

    the river of life, achieving a final peace and sublime restfulness. Not often performed, they are well worth including in concert material.
