Despite a compositional career spanning both World Wars, remarkably little is known about Martin Shaw’s music. It has yet to enjoy the revival of interest that has benefitted the legacies of close friends such as Ralph Vaughan Williams and John Ireland. His songs range from the whimsical and effervescent to the deeply melancholic, and will be a revelation to many. In rescuing these gems from obscurity, Iain Burnside and his singers have given new life to an unjustly neglected figure.
