Notes & Reviews:

"...A surprisingly large number of great composers have written for 'the band', and some of them are represented on this new CD. Elgar, for example, whose bluff and colourfully evocative Severn Suite, written late in his career (1930), has an enduring solidity and inventiveness of technique betraying little evidence of dimming powers...Undimmed also is the Vaughan Williams of the 'Variations'...Band-lubbers everywhere will find this disc an irresistible delight." -Blain, Classic CD
