An exciting prospect:

Exciting, certainly.
Unfortunately, Somm have claimed that the "Triumph of Love" cycle is a first recording whereas the following, I hope likewise exciting, disc containing the cycle has been available since last September: https://www.amazon.it/Stanford-Howell-Christopher-Paglia-Elisabetta/dp/B08CJ5PTWK
I have been in contact with Somm, who have assured me that the first recording claim will be removed from their future publicity.

Apart from the duplication, the two discs, between them, make available a goodly number of previously unrecorded songs

That is wonderful news, thanks for the link to this recording. Christopher Howell has previously recorded excellent discs for the Sheva label, bringing Mackenzie and Stanford's piano music to the catalogue and also accompanied a very worthwhile recital of songs by Cowen -
