Notes & Reviews:

"These are clean, vibrant performances of the two Ives orchestral sets; they reveal detail superbly while maintaining vivid ambience...Dohnanyi and his great orchestra do a splendid job; the chorus is unusually reticent in the Te Deum excerpt that opens the finale of Set No. 2. London's recorded sound is excellent...Dohnanyi finds new, unexpected beauties in the [Ruggles] score...this is easily the finest version ever recorded...a great disc, fit for the Want List." -North, Fanfare
