Notes & Reviews:

William Wordsworth (1908-1988) was a conservative British composer, not to be confused with the more famous poet of the same name. The progressivists of thirty-five years ago wanted none of these traditionally based symphonies, which in their view were occupying program time that should have been given to the rising generation. Forty-years later, it is difficult to imagine how this music aroused such petulant hostility. "Brooding intensity ... impressive and moving. Nicholas Braithwaite and the London Philharmonic are excellent advocates for this splendid music. There are rewards here for the unprejudiced, not least the superb recording quality." -Gramophone
