Notes & Reviews:

This SACD contains the premiere recording of the full score to 'Christopher Columbus - A Musical Journey'. It was originally a radio play by Louis MacNiece written to celebrate the 450th anniversary of Columbus's discovery of the New World in 1492. The recording features the famous father and son actors Julian and Jamie Glover as narrators. This release also features the only available recording of the tone-poem, 'Hamlet and Ophelia'.
