Notes & Reviews:

"After a sinister opening, Handley builds the Mars climax impressively, closing chords have malignant impact...Jupiter develops similar intensity...Saturn, well graduated melancholy climax...choral diminuendo in Neptune beautifully managed..sound overall attractively rich, glowing orchestral color...horns opulent.." Penguin Guide 3 Stars
