  • Countertenor Vocals – Russell Oberlin
  • Viol – Seymour Barab


Very few early English songs survive. Continental modal forms, fused with lost musical structures and traditions of the ancient Celts, combined to create a uniquely English monodic song form.
The exceptionally beautiful St. Godric Songs (c.1150), are the earliest known songs in the English language. They are exquisitely performed here by the legendary countertenor Russell Oberlin, possibly the greatest countertenor of our century. This recording also features Seymour Barab on English fretted Viol, both under the musical direction of Saville Clark. Includes extensive liner notes by Saville Clark and William Bittner.
