Notes & Reviews:

With the sublime The Lark Ascending as its centerpiece, this collection illustrates the way that Vaughan Williams and his contemporaries expressed their national identity, drawing inspiration from folk song, landscape, poetry and the rich history of British music. With favorites by Elgar, Delius, Butterworth and Walton - - including Elgar's unforgettable Introduction and Allegro and Delius's Summer Night on the River - - the works gathered here are romantic, nostalgic and quintessentially British.
