While Schoenberg was pushing back aesthetic boundaries with Gurrelieder and Pierrot lunaire, Edwardian balladeers were still tapping the rich vein of sentimentality first mined by their Victorian forebears. Thomas Allen recalls happy evenings round the family piano and offers this well-sung collection, which will strike a lost chord with many. Barry Millington
