Real and Right and True marks the debut of Australian composer Calvin Bowman on the Decca (Australia) label with a collection of world premieres of over 50 songs. Michael Leunig provides the cover image as well as a number of poems that Bowman sets so exquisitely, amid magical settings of Tennyson, Hilaire Belloc, Robert Louis Stevenson and Walter de la Mare. The outstanding singers – Sara Macliver, Paul MacMahon and Christopher Richardson – are partnered at the piano by Bowman himself. Full texts are included.
