Where Corals Lie Dame Janet Baker

'Where Corals lie' is a poem by Richard Garnett set to music by Edward Elgar as part of his 'Sea Pictures', and the interpretation I most admire is that sung here by Dame Janet Baker. It was another of those pieces that I loved first as a child and it sends shivers down my neck every time I listen to it. When you have grown up by the sea you understand perfectly the longing for it that this song embodies with such a passion.
