Notes & Reviews:

"This Lyrita release coupling Adrian Boult and the London Philharmonic's classic 1966 and 1978 recordings of the string orchestra music of John Ireland and Frank Bridge is as lovely a disc of English music as there has ever been. The two big works here -- Ireland's three movement Concertino Pastorale from 1939 and Bridge's four movement Suite from 1910 -- are superbly crafted, sonorously scored and ardently expressive, and the shorter works are even more affecting... Boult and the London Philharmonic are in top form with a strong tone, a rich blend and a powerful sense of rhythm. And as always, Lyrita's stereo sound is clear, warm and honest." -All Music
