Notes and Editorial Reviews

(Lark)"(David juritz' tone is pure and effortlessly controlled... a few lines that inspired Vaughan Williams are spoken before by Niamh Cusack, a legitimate recording device" (Job): "it (was) to the credit of Collins that Barry Wordsworth was chosen for their recording of Vaughan Williams' Job with the Philharmonia. In my opinion, he fully justifies the risk, with an extremely fine interpretation that I would rank next to Boult's (EMI) as far as recordings are concerned... He never let's us forget that this score was written for the stage, and the drama behind the notes is fully realized... Collins provided a clear and balanced recording" (Gramophone) (Lark)"(David juritz' tone is pure and effortlessly controlled... a few lines that inspired Vaughan Williams are spoken before by Niamh Cusack, a legitimate recording device" (Job): "it (was) to the credit of Collins that Barry Wordsworth was chosen for their recording of Vaughan Williams' Job with the Philharmonia.
