About the Compositions

The Victorian drawing-room ballad is a much-derided musical genre – perhaps partly due to the way in which it was successfully and stylishly cultivated by women composers.

Two of the most successful songwriters of this period were Virginia Gabriel whose songs have an appealing Italianate quality and the immensely popular Claribel, pseudonym of Charlotte Alington Barnard. British songwriter Liza Lehman produced more subtle and inventive songs.
