Paul A Snook
Fanfare, June 1995

This release came as a sheer revelation! That there remained an English composer of the first half of this centruy whose large catalog of such high-caliber orchestral music is here receiving its first exposure on disc makes for an exhilarating rush of discovery…Marco Polo’s British Light Music series…The National Orchestra of Ireland has already distinguished itself in other Marco Polo recordings. This is a highly professional organization which, under Andrew Penny’s symphathetic and careful baton, supplies strong advocacy for these unjustly neglected marvels of music-making.

American Record Guide

"The performances are strong and impressive, deeply committed, extremely well played, and carefully planned and executed. ...You will not be disappointed with this superb release."


"Andrew Penny and the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland turn out to be more than capable champions of some enticingly far-flung repertoire and the recorded sound is excellent ... Anglophiles every-where should waste no time in investigating this likeable, most enterprising release for themselves"

Classic CD

"The Irish orchestra play most eloquently and expressively."
