Notes & Reviews:

These recordings of Sir Arthur Bliss's orchestral works, conducted by the great champion of British music, Vernon Handley, were exceedingly popular when first released. "The Ulster Orchestra is outstanding and, as ever, Chandos' engineering produces a luxurious sound, highlighting the brilliance and richness of Bliss's orchestration." - BBC Music Magazine
