Beethoven arranged dozens of traditional English folksongs for voice and piano trio with delightful results and received a tidy income for years from the wealthy Scottish industrialist who hired him. Composer David Newman—who can be found in the credits of countless movies since 1984—pens a work performed here by his daughter, soprano Diana Newman.
