Shirley Elizabeth Collins MBE (born 5 July 1935) is an English folk singer who was a significant contributor to the English Folk Revival of the 1960s and 1970s. She often performed and recorded with her sister Dolly, whose accompaniment on piano and portative organ created unique settings for her sister's plain, austere singing style. Shirley Collins and her older sister, Dolly, grew up in the Hastings area of East Sussex in a family which kept alive a great love of traditional song.

Anthems in Eden - Студийный альбом от Shirley Collins, Dolly Collins. В альбом вошло 14 треков. Продолжительность альбома: 01:09:53. Shirley & Dolly Collins. Gathering Rushes in the Month of May.

Anthems in Eden is a 1969 album by Shirley and Dolly Collins, with the Early Music Consort of London, directed by David Munrow. The album originally consisted of a 28-minute set of folk songs plus seven other individual pieces performed by the same group. Track one is a suite, "A song-story", lasting 28 minutes, 7 seconds and is the centrepiece of the album.

One of the unimpeachable gems of the late-'60s English folk scene, Shirley & Dolly Collins' Anthems in Eden grew out of the sisters' love of David Munrow's Musica Reservata, an ensemble that combined medieval and "early" instrumentation with music of more or less similar vintage - an obvious notion if one thinks about it, but one that had been very much snowballed. Shirley Collins herself today regards the second side of the album, the unrelated folk songs, with some unease - they do not fit with the concept, and detract from it somewhat. The side-long "A Song-Story Medley," however, is peerless, as Munrow's so-called "natural orchestra" of crumhorns, sackbuts, cornetts, and rackets traces a landscape where "the maypole, which once the centre of so many village greens, was replaced by the memorial stone.

Anthems in Eden is a 1969 album by English folk duo Shirley & Dolly Collins. The duo is accompanied by the Early Music Consort of London, directed by David Munrow. Album descriptions on Last. In 1976, six new songs were recorded with a different assortment of accompanists, to replace the original seven individual songs.
