Anthony Rolfe Johnson sings well throughout the album, with Graham Johnson his usual stalwart self as accompanist. The liner notes are by Sophie Fuller rather than Johnson, and Fuller does a good job in giving quick summaries of each composer and song, no small feat given that 15 composers and 27 songs have to be covered.

We are lucky that Anthony Rolfe Johnson left such a legacy of recordings, but new additions are still welcome. Rolfe Johnson performs Purcell, Schubert and Britten, three composers he placed above all others. This is a deeply moving recital of such sensitivity as is rarely found, and this disc will make you vibrate to the very core of your soul. This live recital from the Theatre Royal de la Monnaie dates from 1996, placing it in the last years of his career as a singer. Apart from some strain when he is singing with full force, he is in good voice, that plangent beauty of tone which was his trademark much in evidence.

Anthony Rolfe Johnson obituary. Mellifluous tenor outstanding in the Passions of Bach and operas of Britten. He began his operatic career in the last years of the English Opera Group, making his debut in 1973 with them as Vaudemont in Tchaikovsky's rarely heard Iolanta, a portrayal of sincere beauty. Britten's Albert Herring in 1974 was another endearing performance. His Glyndebourne debut came as the conductor Stroh in Richard Strauss's Intermezzo, a tricky role he encompassed easily, and as Lensky in Eugene Onegin in 1974. However, he did not appear there again until much later as Peter Grimes, a role he recorded under Bernard Haitink.
