Notes & Reviews:

Dutton's survey of works for voice and orchestra by John Ireland, including the last two unrecorded songs orchestrated by Ireland himself and sung here by Roderick Williams, is filled out with a selection of encores by British composers and two unrecorded orchestral songs by Elgar. The overture by Tranchell, a gorgeous interlude by Walter Collins and tuneful folk dance arrangements by Herbert Murrill are coupled with more substantial fare by Lionel Sainsbury and Elis Pehkonen.

BBC Music Magazine
Roderick Williams declaims his own orcehstration of Annabel Lee rather well, and enjoys two robust sea songs
