Notes & Reviews:

The major work on this recording is Elgar's The Fringes of the Fleet, here receiving its first fully professional orchestral recording in 92 years.

"Roderick Williams is a gifted singer who excels in 20th Century English song; and he is up to his high standards here...The Guildford Philharmonic is not often recorded, but their fine performance is spirited and the recorded sound is up to snuff. This music is not heard very often; it is entertaining and suited to summer band concerts...Notes and texts."-American Record Guide
