There's something about a folksong. Ancient, eternal, anonymous, handed down by word of mouth from father to son, from mother to daughter, from a rural age of simplicity and innocence to our complex and cynical modern world - folksongs have a clarity that can pierce our jaded 21st-century hearts.

So the story goes. But while our ears may hear that refreshing purity, the songs have their own tales to tell. Many are not actually anonymous at all. Some were carefully crafted with paper and pen. Often they are claimed with equal fervour by communities at opposite ends of the country, or even on opposite sides of the ocean. A few are less than a century old. Nonetheless, there is still something about a folksong.

This recording features Cantillation - an ensemble of fine voices with the speed, agility and flexibility of a chamber orchestra. Formed in 2001 by Antony Walker and Alison Johnston, it has since been busy in the concert hall, opera theatre and the recording studio. The performance is accompanied by Sinfonia Australis and conducted by Antony Walker and Paul Stanhope.

Composers: Bob Chilcott, James Erb, Grainger, Elliott Gyger, Robert Latham, Daryl Runswick, Rutter, Paul Stanhope, Vaughan Williams, Dan Walker, David Willcocks.
