Chandos is pleased to offer this collector's edition of the 'Film Music of Vaughan Williams', packaged and sold at three discs for the price of two. All the music is performed by the BBC Philharmonic and Rumon Gamba on the well-loved Chandos Movies label. The collection includes the music for 'Scott of the Antarctic', 'Coastal Command' and '49th Parallel'. There is much to enjoy here and the artwork effectively profiles the original CD covers.
