About

The finest large symphonic recordings of the decade. The burnished colors of Bantock’s singular music—moody, quirky, haunting—glow under the direction of Vernon Handley’ (Fi, USA)

"Magnificently recorded and performed. When audiences are crying out for “melodious music” how can such music as this have been ignored for so long?’ (Gramophone)

A towering classic, as important as a landmark in the rediscovery of British music as it is a monument to the technique of orchestral recording’ (International Record Review)
