Notes & Reviews:

"The late Trevor Harvey gave a warm and well-deserved welcome to the English, Scottish, and Cornish Dances, when these recordings, conducted by the composer, first appeared. Now with the latest set of Irish Dances added as well as the tow movements which were written to go with two sets of English Dances as the ballet, 'Solitaire,' it is even more of a winner. It is even more compelling than the very recent 'Chandos' issue of the same coupling. Arnold regularly takes a broader, more warmly expressive view without ever sacrificing tension, often springing rhythms more infectiously-the analogue sound on the 'Lyrita' issue is given a splendid transfer. It is less analytical than the 'Chandos,' but with plenty of presence it is just as full and brilliant. The new items, in digital sound, very well recorded too, bring no feeling of inconsistency." -Gramophone
