Calvin Bowman is the first Australian classical composer to sign to the Decca Classics (Australia) label. The prolific pianist and organist specialises in artsong and has, to date, written nearly a hundred songs with more constantly on the way.

He is a laureate of the Ned Rorem Award for Song composition, the Diana Barnhart American Song Competition, and the English Poetry and Song Society Artsong Award. Bowman is also the only Australian composer to ever have been exclusively featured on the prestigious Decca label aside from Percy Grainger.

His songs have been lauded by many luminaries including Barbara Bonney, Sir Neville Marriner and Lee Hoiby, and are recognized for their technical prowess and humanity. This is an utterly charming selection of songs and is highly recommended.
