Notes and Editorial Reviews

Authoritative first recordings of important works by England's greatest living composer. 1993 GRAMMY® Nominee for Best Engineered Classical Recording. A hi-fi favorite!

"The recording quality on this CD is of stunning immediacy serving the music rather than the reverse. The project is a happy stroke of genius from Reference, the late Christopher Palmer (how we feel his absence!) and, of course, from the composer. Musical values clearly swept the board in all project decisions... Warmly recommended for any collection of Arnold and any collector of British music. This is not a shelf item but one which cries out to be played."
- Rob Barnett, MusicWeb International

"A stunning release, by any
Read more standard." --Fanfare
