Pianist Frank Merrick and violinist Henry Holst stand
as witnesses to music's vulnerabilities. In this they are
far from unique. The present recordings give a hearing
on CD to LPs until now stashed away in the oubliette
of history. They join those on Frank Merrick volume 1
(6 CDs on NIMBUS NI8820). The present set reminds
us of works that were, at the time of recording in the
late 1950s and early 1960s, unfashionable or even
unknown. They found a voice in two musicians whose
own careers were at or past their highest peak.

With grateful thanks to Frank Merrick’s children, Celia, Paul
& Phoebe, and to Rosalind Murrell, for their advice,
photographs of Frank Merrick and the loan of multiple
copies of these very rare LPs
