Notes & Reviews:

This release in the British Composer Series highlights a true cross-over artist, John Fox, whos early career after World War II involved performances in big bands, arranging and composing. Over the years he would arrang and conduct the BBC Radio Orchestra in his own music and that of one of his favorite composers, George Gershwin. His true love, Joy Devon, who can be heard on a couple of the selections on this CD, passed away in 2004 which prompted Fox's composition of the Suite: Joy of Love. His rapturous, lush, and elegant melodies are Fox's defining attributes. Voyage of a Lifetime will appeal to those who love the music of Malcolm, Arnold, Ernest Tomlinson, and, of course, Robert Farnon, who was one of his major influences.
