This recording was made possible by funding from The Boltini Trust.

‘No Man’s Land presents the “airs and ditties” of two ghosts hanging on barbed wire – shades of Wilfred Owen’s “Strange Meeting” – and is brought vividly to life by tenor Ian Bostridge and baritone Roderick Williams, supported by evocative backing from the Hallé Orchestra under Nicholas Collon. Aftertones, a choral work, is rather solid by comparison.’
