The Toronto Symphony Orchestra Vaughan Williams recording, conducted by Peter Oundijan and featuring a number of soloists, including Lawrence Wiliford, won the Classical Album of the Year: Large Ensemble at the 2019 JUNO Awards!
Wiliford shows here why he is one of this country's finest song interpreters. His lyrical phrasing, diction, articulation, range of vocal colours, subtle vibrato and high emotion are wonderful.
