Notes & Reviews:

Despite his little formal education, George Lloyd had three symphonies and two operas produced before he was twenty-five. This promising start to a career in music was literally blasted to a halt by the war. Severely shell-shocked by an explosion, he was slowly nursed back to health over many years by his devoted wife, Nancy. The revival of interest in his sweeping symphonies has been thanks in large part to championship by the conductor of this recording, Sir Edward Downes.
