Notes & Reviews:

"Another great selection from Guild, full of the most delicious things. George French's title piece, Highly Strung, is a wild scherzo in the manner of David Rose's Holiday for Strings, with lots of swirling string movement and great support from the brass and winds. Jack Mason's Pops Polka is a typical Boston rush and Steve Race's Ring Ding has a touch of Latin about it. Very nice...Guild has done it again, compiling a fascinating collection of pieces in excellent sound, and with helpful, but not exhaustive, notes. I have a list of pieces I'd love them to do and my mouth waters at what delights they will come up with next. As ever, I am all anticipation. This is an invaluable series." - MusicWeb International
