Notes & Reviews:

"Superbly balanced and refined performances of favorite Vaughan Williams' works which, with the help of sumptuous recorded sound, here have great power and intensity. A richly rewarding record." -Penguin Guide

Gramophone Magazine
The sound of the LSO strings in 1910 must remain largely a matter of conjecture but this beautifully textured account on gut-string instruments cuts to the heart of the score and Wordsworth's impeccable Boultian pedigree is evident throughout.
