More wonderful vocal work.

As in volume one of this collection, Burton is on wonderful form. While many may be familiar with his "Undermilkwood" and "Ancient Mariner", these less well known recordings are a treasure. His measured, lambent tones seem particularly suited to Hardy, but his vocal dexterity is equally able to illuminate Donne's complex and subtle lyrics. Really rather splendid.
