Maw wrote "Scenes and Arias" on commission from the BBC for The Proms, and the work was premiered in 1962. Maw revised it in 1966. Scored for soprano, mezzo-soprano, contralto and orchestra, its language is quite chromatic, densely so at times, although some passages resemble a more "modern" version of Walton-like cross-rhythms. The text comes from a 14th century anonymous poem, but Maw mixes 3 languages in rough succession in each verse, old French, old English, and Latin. One could argue that this mix of languages has a rough parallel in some of the varying styles of the music.
To me at least, Anthony Milner is a much less famous name than Maw. The two works here are his official Op. 1, "Salutatio Angelica" from 1948, and his 1969 work "Roman Spring", both vocal works. "Salutatio Angelica" sets texts from the "Angelus" ancient devotion, the "Regina coeli" Eastertide antiphon, and selections from Psalm 130. Its language could be called "neoclassical" overall, with hints of Stravinsky at times, but generally inhabiting a comfortable tonal zone, with the possible exception of the 3rd chorus "Et Verbum caro factum est". I would rank "Salutatio Angelica" as the easiest listening of the 3 works on this CD. "Roman Spring" is much more "modern" and densely chromatic in its language, where Milner himself uses Schoenberg's preferred term of "pan-tonal" to describe its idiom.
All of the performances are good, and feature vintage rosters of British singers from the era. If going off the beaten track is of interest to you and you're interested in these composers, you'll do fine with this CD.
