Some discs I acquired - Ina Boyle was a gracious gift among other gracious gifts by Vandermolen - this year that soon became personal favourites:

Another couple that I bought (the Second) and only really started playing (the First) this year, are both CPO discs with the two wonderful symphonies by Ben-Haim:

Megadittoes on the Ben-Haim discs.  Very fine works. 

I'll have to try that Ina Boyle disc.  I have to admit that I don't find the the Gipps disc essential, but perhaps I still need more time to warm up to the works.
