Notes & Reviews:

Although Stanford's seven symphonies remain well within the stylistic orbit of Mendelssohn, Schumann and Brahms, these accomplished works are marked by resourceful and often subtle orchestration. 'Symphony No. 2, "Elegiac"', completed in 1880, seems to have no overt elegiac intent, although it is prefaced by a quotation from Tennyson’s 'In Memoriam. Symphony No. 5' was inspired by Milton’s poems 'L’Allegro' and 'Il Penseroso,' lines from which are included in the score, and reprinted in the booklet accompanying this recording.
