Triple Box of Delights Set
Fantastic triple CD set including:
Malcolm Arnold: English, Irish, Scottish & Cornish Dances
Malcolm Arnold composed some of the catchiest tunes ever, among them his witty and brilliant English, Scottish, Irish and Cornish Dances. Each is a gem — and so is this simply wonderful CD.
Box of Delights
Box of Delights does exactly what it says on the label. Phyllis Tate’s magnificent London Fields describes the Hampton Court Maze, St. James’s Park, Kew Gardens and Hampstead Heath while Granville Bantock’s Russian Scenes are terrific. Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s tuneful music is well-known while Elizabeth Lutyens wrote a superb suite about crossing from London to Paris by boat and train. This is also the only CD on which you hear the complete Fancy Dress Suite by Armstrong Gibbs.
The third CD in the trilogy — Lyrita Classics — features Elgar’s Enigma Variations, Balfe’s Bohemian Girl, Peter Warlock’s Capriol Suite, Holst’s St. Paul’s Suite, Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on a theme of Thomas Ta llis, Lord Berners’ Triumph of Neptune plus tuneful music by Percy Grainger and Hamilton Harty. What a feast!
