Notes & Reviews:

"The orchestral rhapsody, A Shropshire Lad, with its yearning lyricism, represents the English folksong school at its most captivatingly atmospheric, and the other three works are in a similarly appealing pastoral vein, and again have moments of passionate feeling. Marriner's performances with the Academy have stood the test of time. They are very beautiful and utterly evocative. The recording, vivid and wide-ranging, dates from 1976 and the CD remastering shows just how good it is." -Penguin Guide (****)
