Notes & Reviews:

The significance of this recording, apart from the exceptional, clean masterings by Opus Kura is the relatively rare nature of Vaughan-Williams. This 1945 performance is derived from a wartime V-disc designed for the armed forces and pressed on vinyl. The original masters, according to the CD notes, were eventually destroyed, making this recording all the more valuable.
