Quote from: Captain Haddock on May 12, 2007, 10:24:05 AMBoth are good but I'd opt for the Lyrita as the CD contains a fine performance of Ireland's "These things shall be", one of his finest works and a beautiful performance of "Legend" (superior to the Chandos recording)Ireland was a very fine composer. The emotion is understated which, paradoxically, makes it more poignant. My favourite works are:"These things shall be"Mai DunThe Forgotten RiteLegend for Piano and OrchestraPiano ConcertoEpic MarchLondon OvertureThis is the best Ireland disc known to me:http://www.amazon.co.uk/conducts-Ireland-London-Philharmonic-Orchestra/dp/B000N8UVRG/ref=pd_bowtega_1/202-7235464-3664651?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1178994274&sr=1-1
