Notes Dedicated to Robert Ivan Foster (baritone) and recorded by him (with Nina Walker, piano and Jonathan Steward, clarinet) on Onslo LP OCAB-61-65; first public performance by Robert Ivan Foster at The Questors Theatre, London on 19th December 1964; songs are: 1. The Shepherdess’ Carol (D’où viens-tu, bergère?); 2. The Cherry Tree Carol; 3. The Huron Carol (Jesous Ahatonhia)


…of the three carols I think that The Huron Carol is outstanding, but all three are notable for the effective economy of the accompaniments.

The Gramophone, September 1965

…I hope we shall hear much more of his compositions in “The Gramophone World”.
