Notes & Reviews:

"The bright, breezy exuberance of the eight Boyce symphonies have long earned them a special place in the affections of those who respond to unpretentious cheerfulness... What is missing [from this performance] is not only the sheer Tlan that made Pinnock's performances so distinctive and fresh, but also the greater sense of nuance, of light and shade in the older recording, which wears its years remarkably well and remains my preferred choice. Still, this new Naxos will undoubtedly give considerable pleasure to anyone seeking a bargain version of these irresistible works..." -Fanfare

"... The symphonies have a sunny disposition. All but one are in major keys, with a preponderance of fast movements and lively dances... Kevin Mallon founded the Aradia Ensemble... and their foundation of eleven strings provides just the right scale for the symphonies. This recording is clean and refreshingly immediate." -1001 Classical Recordings
