      Donald Swann was known primarily for the comic songs he wrote with Michael Flanders. However, throughout his life, Swann set to music poems and lyrics – mostly love songs early on and, in later years, settings of Victorian verse. Known and loved only by a handful of singers and fans, many of these songs are receiving their first commercial release on a new compilation from Hyperion.
