Celebrating 50 Years Devoted to British Music, Set Two


"An A-Z of British music in two volumes, four discs apiece: William Alwyn to John Ireland, and Gordon Jacob to William Wordsworth? It could only be Lyrita, celebrating 50 years devoted to British Music. These are highlights from Richard Itter's catalogue. The recording quality is remarkably consistent, often outstanding; the notes are engaging. These two volumes are eloquent reminders of the gaps there'd be in the catalogue without the dedication of everyone involved with Lyrita." Andrew McGregor, BBC Radio 3 CD Review aul Conway has done an excellent job in producing short and straight-to-the-point sleeve-notes for this edition. There are two fascinating personal recollections of Richard Itter by Edward Greenfield and Lewis Foreman. Both are required reading for all Lyrita enthusiasts. And finally the booklets have been graced with some dozen excellent photographs of some of the conductors." John France,
