Uniquely fascinating programme compares and contrasts great songwriters from both sides of the Atlantic during the early-mid 20th century, mixing the well-known with the extremely unusual, like the individual and impressionistic world of Charles Griffes' songs after the poems of Fiona Macleod.
 
It's a concept ideally suited to Bonney who, while American, has lived in London for many years and has recorded outstandingly successful English (Fairest Isle) and American (Songs with Andre Previn) discs for Decca.
