Samuel Coleridge-Taylor: Six Sorrow Songs

[Songs of Paradise (2008)]

AfriClassical was pleased to receive the following message from the English tenor Gordon Pullin:

I am writing to you about Samuel Coleridge-Taylor. About twenty years ago I broadcast a programme of his songs on the BBC, including the Six Sorrow Songs. I have recently recorded these songs on a CD (of settings of Christina Rossetti and readings of her poems), which is available from me at 97 High Street, Banwell, Somerset, BS29 6AG, UK. I find that there is no longer an SC-T Society in England, so I hope that you may be able to put this information in the hands of any who might be interested. If you have any ideas about how I can inform other interested people I would be very grateful.

With best wishes,

Gordon Pullin
