Added one more item to my "old french orchestra" collection, the Munch/Warner (EMI and Erato Disque) collection



I'm making something of an effort not to get everything from Amazon. Found this one on Presto, previous order from an eBay seller.

The combination of Vaughan Williams's 'On Wenlock Edge' and Warlock's 'The Curlew' was irresistible:

A sensible acquisition my friend :)
There comes a point in your life when you realize: Who matters, Who never did, Who won't anymore, And who always will. So, don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

Availability seems to be limited, so I decided not to linger and go ahead.  :)

That is an excellent version of RVW's On Wenlock Edge, Jeffrey. 8) I hope you enjoy as much as I did.

Great acquisition Jeffrey, I am very curious what you find of them.

Nice! I need to revisit these recordings. I do have this DVD box set as well, which is quite good the best I can remember:
