Notes & Reviews:

Here's an enormously useful and enjoyable disc containing some well-known favorites (Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus, Toward the Unknown Region), alongside three rarities... The performances here are all very good... Baritone Roderick Williams shows some unsteadiness in his lower register but otherwise sings with excellent diction and warm tone. The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic plays very well for conductor David Lloyd-Jones, and the chorus, if not the last word in precision, sounds quite comfortable with music that's fun to sing and not too difficult to master. Very good sonics complete an essential addition to the Vaughan Williams discography." -ClassicsToday
