Brindley Sherratt’s pre-eminence as an operatic bass is the result of two daring career shifts. Initially trained as a trumpeter, he gave up his first instrument as a student to be come a singer. Yet even then, it was only in his mid-thirties that he left the professional security ofa position in the BBC Singers to explore the world of opera.

Now, the voyage of discovery continues as Sherratt turns to the intimate medium of the song recital. With the superb pianist Julius Drake as collaborator, in Fear No More Sherratt draws on all of his accumulated technical and expressive wisdom to traverse death-haunted songs by Schubert, Mussorgsky and Richard Strauss before arriving at a final group of five twentieth-century English songs in which consolation and acceptance are the keynotes.


Brindley Sherratt came late to opera, beginning his stage career well into his 30s, and has waited another couple of decades for good measure before making his first recital recording. The highly rewarding result captures his drinkably deep bass voice at its peak. Teamed with the pianist Julius Drake, he offers a programme exploring themes of fear and death, with a final affirmative twist.  Erica Jeal
