Sir Adrian Boult conducts Vaughan Williams - The Complete EMI Recordings

Notes & Reviews:

The Guardian, 28th March 2013
The symphonies are the bedrock of the set; this was Boult's second complete cycle on disc, and the benefits of his career-long immersion in these scores is audible...Boult gives [The Pilgrim's Progress] remarkable breadth and transcendence. His account of Job is also extraordinary, as are the performances of the Tallis Fantasia, the 16-voice version of the Serenade to Music and In the Fen Country; the list could go on and on.

MusicWeb International, 17th June 2013
It seems superfluous to recommend this box. It contains around 17 hours of Boult's VW. Many of these recordings are amongst the very best you will hear. Above it, the box offers a concentrated focus on one of the composer's most devoted exponents, a man who premiered three of the symphonies, and who remained an artistic partner par excellence.
