Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
This recording, subtitled 'The Longed-for Light', is a collection of Elgar's shorter works composed during the first World War, an affair that is still referred to in the UK as "The Great War". The sound is clear, undistorted, and rich in detail.
