    William Blake was born in London on Novem , to James, a hosier, and Catherine Blake. Two of his six siblings died in infancy. From early childhood, Blake spoke of having visions—at four he saw God "put his head to the window"; around age nine, while walking through the countryside, he saw a tree filled with angels. The main work on this disc, the Songs and Proverbs of William Blake, is certainly one of Britten's more difficult song cycles to love, with their sparse piano writing and, on occasions, almost spoken text, they lack an immediate impact. However, with repeated listening you come to appreciate the wonders that lie within this dark and intense cycle!/5(6).
