Notes & Reviews:

This release from EMI's British Composers Series featuring the music of Ralph Vaughan Williams restores two classics of the early stereo catalog: the extraordinarily lyrical Fifth Symphony with the inimitable Sir John Barbirolli, and a choral-orchestral LP made by Sir Malcolm Sargent in 1957, featuring the only recording of the Serenade to Music in the version for four soloists and chorus.
