Existing edition of A Charm of Lullabies (BH 5000052) extended by an appendix containing two settings originally intended for the cycle but discarded by the composer: A Sweet Lullaby (Nicholas Breton) and Somnus, the Humble God (John Denham). These two songs were first performed at the 2018 BBC Proms by Sarah Connolly (mezzo-soprano) and Joseph Middleton (piano), and the first recording, by the same performers, is available on Chandos (CHAN10944). The publication includes lyrics with German and French reference translations, plus introduction by Eric Crozier, performance notes by Nancy Evans, and editorial note on the additional songs by Colin Matthews.
