Notes & Reviews:

"this is a superbly played disc of very memorable music... The broad, deep soundstage favoured by Chandos suits the music well... But it is the playing of the band under Rundell that is most deserving of praise. Aided by music of great skill and transparency, these players achieve a wonderfully homogeneous sound. Indeed, Britain has produced some very fine brass players in the past and the standard of music making here augurs well for the future." -MusicWeb

Gramophone Magazine
Brilliant playing: no wonder they are the finest wind orchestra in Britain . Energy of a different sort is present in A John Gay Suite by the much underrated Buxton Orr. Decked out in expert orchestration, played to perfection and recorded in typically sumptuous sound, it provides an ideal conclusion to a splendid disc.
