Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...Sir Charles is a very sure-footed Elgarian rather in the Boult tradition and there is no item here which is anything other than wholly idiomatic and sympathetically conducted... The Nursery Suite is given a pleasant, gently affectionate reading... There's much to enjoy throughout a very well-filled disc. The RLPO play very well and are given a good, sonorous recording."
-- Gramophone [3/1990]
