I love this Symphony. This was the first recording I ever heard (I have others now). I like that photo. I used to prop the Lp version up in front of me,when I was a youngster,and look at it while I was listening! The Chandos Bax cycle had wonderful photos,too.

Yep, it's a fantastic symphony and Handley, IMHO, does it full justice. Much more involving than the Lloyd-Jones and Boult I've heard IMHO, although there is merit in both of the afore mentioned performances taken on their terms.

Thanks, Richard. Finzi's music is just so gorgeous that it was difficult for me to pass up this set, especially at the price I paid for it.

Excellent choice.

Good to hear, Andrei. This has been one that has been under my radar for years. I'm glad I finally pulled the trigger on it.

You guys are in for a voyage into beauty. Just yesterday I was wallowing in Dies natalis. I might indulge as well, as I don't have that many works of his - maybe 4 discs' worth. Decisions, decisions...

I'm definitely looking forward to the aural journey.

Hmm. Vaughan Williams and Finzi are both on my "to do" list. In both cases all that I really know well are a handful of songs... but in both cases they are very, very fine songs.
I am now working on a discography of the works of Vagn Holmboe. Please visit and also contribute!

I saw Karl's comment and I couldn't help it, you like it?

I started to get really into Tishchenko at one point, he's significantly under-appreciated I think  ;)
