Anna Noakes’s direct tone and visceral playing particularly suit these English/Irish pieces. With harpist Gillian Tingay, each is given an individual stamp, from the dashing water nymphs in Alwyn’s Naiades to Herbie Hancock-like grooves in Heath’s Beyond the Dark or an unsentimental freshness in Elgar’s Chansons.
