By M. J. Gray on March 20, 2006
Format: Audio CD
Sir Michael Tippett is not a composer one automatically associates with English song. This album of extraordinarily beautiful songs should go some way to remedying that. Tippett's World War 2 song cycle, The Heart's Assurance, deserves to be more widely known. The remainder of the album consists of the long, reflective Boyhood's End, and Benjamin Britten's Canticle I, a hymn by Pelham Humphrey, Tippett's settings of Shelley's Music and three Shakespeare texts, and his arrangements of some of Purcell's songs. These latter are spare, elegant settings and compare favourably with Britten's Purcell Realizations. They might even be better. Of course, the performers contribute to the beauty of this album. Both singer and pianist treat these works with repsect. Iain Burnside's accompaniment is sensitive, supportive and never overpowers the singer. John Mark Ainsley's slightly melancholy tone suits these songs admirably. He is not overtly emotional; the impact of these moving songs is greater, I think, because of his restraint. His phrasing is superb, and his diction excellent. You can hear the words without needing them in front of you. This album is already near the top of my favourites list.

The Times Online, 2th July 2007

In Ainsley's winsome recital, Tippett and Purcell meet as timeless contemporaries. The tenor's sad, elfin sprightliness suits Tippett's Songs for Ariel as much as Purcell's Ah How Sweet. His burning, ardent tone pleads as effectively in The Heart's Assurance as in What Shall I Do?

Ainsley's voice is in prime form - it is effortless at the top of his range, and the seamless shift from full voice to falsetto is magical. He is abetted to the peerless song accompanist Iain Burnside, whose sensitivity to the texts equals the singer's. A wonderful selection of poets, from Alun Lewis to the comical Mr D'Urfey, makes this as valuable to connoisseurs of literature as of the voice.
The Times Online

Taking its title from the last of The Heart's Assurance, this recital juxtaposes four vocal works by Tippett (The Heart's Assurance, Boyhood's End, Music and Songs for Ariel) with none of the Purcell arrangements he made with Walter Bergmann when both were at Morley College; there is also Benjamin Britten's Canticle I - a Purcellian counterpart to Boyhood's End, like Heart's Assurance written for Peter Pears's voice.

The opening `Song' has much of the complexity of the piano Concerto; after accompanying Pears in the premiere Britten declined to perform it again due to the fact that it required so much practice.

Other than the delightful Tempest settings these were for a 1961 Old Vic production, Tippett's music needs some `head work' - I remember as a a student listening in wonderment to his Third Programme talks, but failing to grasp much of what he said!
