Excellent Lol! I have the CD version and very good it is too.

I was expecting RVW-light, Jeffrey. Not at all, more gnarly but in a good way.

I know, PD. I have been on the lookout for some time and knew one would turnup eventually. I paid £20 and it is a lovely copy.

+1 I saw her interviewed on TV about VW and she came across as very nice.

Here is a brief but informative film about her;

Music is 'Proud Thames'.

A pity that she withdrew her two symphonies.

Brilliant! I enjoyed that, thanks. I have the Lyrita recording of "Proud Thames". Which will grace my TT this evening. :)

My pleasure Lol. Yes, watching the short video made me realise what a fine work 'Proud Thames' is. It would be gracing my CD player as well...if I could find the CD!  ::)

Can't see the wood for the trees, Jeffrey?

I must say I'm bowled over by Symphony for Double String Orchestra. The Lento and Passacalia movements are very special.

All the more reason to resume my panicky search for the CD Lol.

Do I dare suggest that perhaps it's time for a bit of culling?  >:D  And, perhaps working with someone to design some new shelving/cases too?  ;)

Good point CD - although the culling is underway with the local charity shops being the main beneficiaries. Having said that I wonder how many admirers there of Klaus Egge and Peterson-Berger in the local community.

Not easy I know!  I'm slowly (rather haphazardly) going through mine and yanking some of them--for either relisten, they're duplicates and putting them into a box to sort through a bit further:  Friends? Sell? Donations? Dump?  I have some sets too which I haven't tapped into much--sometimes due to initial reactions to some of the instruments and/or playing style such as this one which I need to give a serious rethink:

No doubt on the search for Arnell's Third Symphony  ;D

:laugh: Wait, I thought it was "Ladies First"?!  :D  ;)

For what its worth, I listened further to that Bach/Brilliant set.  Not a happy camper..will dive in a bit further, but, truthfully, it's not doing anything for me--probably my fault.

With a fabulous pedigree of The Central Band of the Royal Air Force, Director of Music, Wing Commander J L Wallace OBE LRAM ARCM RAF who himself conducts "Hammersmith". You can't get much more authentic then that, especially with Imogen directing.

A terrific purchase, Jeffrey.

Thanks Lol - that's good to know. It wasn't expensive (£7.00) and I like the cover design as well.

Thanks Fergus - I thought so too.
There's another copy available at a similar price through a different seller.

I think it was you Lol who was mentioning and praising this LP already when I was exploring Holst's works beyond the Lyrita CDs, probably in the British composers thread. I might have have been inquiring about some of the works in the Holst Collector's Edition, that those were part of I believe.
