It seems extraordinary that Bliss's great pioneering film-score for Things to Come, some 45 minutes of music, became lost in its original form. Now, thanks to Philip Lane, we can at last hear this inspired, wonderfully orchestrated score as Bliss conceived it, with the closing Epilogue so full of Elgarian nobilmente spirit. [...] The Royal Palaces Suite displays plenty of regality and also shows the composer at his most diverting and tuneful in the charming Waltz for The Ballroom in Buckingham Palace and altogether this splendid CD confirms Bliss as a composer of resource, who could write good tunes to order at least in the early part of his career.
