Notes & Reviews:

This is the world premiere recording of 'Woodland Suite' and the first recording of the 'Three Songs of Praise' in the version with orchestral accompaniment. Only a version with organ accompaniment has been available previously. This disc also contains the first recording ever of Sir George Dyson's choral Cantata 'Nebuchadnezzar,' performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra with Mark Padmore and Neal Davies, conducted by Richard Hickox

BBC Music Magazine
... Richard Hickox again reminds us of his unrivalled mastery in the British choral-orchestral repertoire, particularly here in terms of balance and pace. The two soloists, Mark Padmore as a herald and Neal Davis as Nebuchadnezzar, bring character to the performance, but it's the excellent BBC Symphony Chorus that drives the narrative with its incisive singing.

Gramophone Magazine
... Mark Padmore sings beautifully in the role of the Herald, comparable with the baritone soloist in Belshazzar, while Neal Davies is strong as Nebuchadnezzar. Richard Hickos draws warmly committed playing and singing from the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus.
