MusicWeb International, March 2012

Trevor Harvey described the Holst as scintillating and so it remains, as do the other items, in a recording which sounds stupendous for its age; though mono only, there’s a good spread of sound.

The performance of Wenlock Edge—warmly received at the time—is well worth hearing, but it’s been superseded by more recent versions. George Maran’s old-school diction now sounds stilted and the sound is noticeably drier, though more than acceptable. For the sake of the orchestral items, this is one of the highlights of a series which is well worth exploring if you can. © 2012 MusicWeb International Read complete review
