John Quinn
MusicWeb International, August 2005

"The notes accompanying this CD are excellent. So too are the transfers. The recordings are remarkably good when one considers that some of them are nearly sixty years old. An admirable amount of detail is reported and on my equipment I detected very little surface noise. Certainly I can’t imagine anyone buying this disc finding the sound quality to be an ostacle to enjoyment.

But it’s the performances that matter. Without exception they are superb. The conducting is consistently sympathetic, imaginative and idiomatic, just as you’d expect. The execution by the fledgling RPO is of the highest order. These recordings are as essential to any Delian as they are self-recommending. If you haven’t yet sampled Beecham in Delius and wonder what all the fuss is about this modestly priced anthology is an excellent way to find out. Naxos have put us in their debt by restoring these performances to the catalogue. Strongly recommended."
