I can no longer find Havergal Brian's The Tigers in the archive. Has it been made commercially available?
I am esp. interested in the version wich MVS uploaded last year because it contained the BBC announcements.

I haven't checked the archive to see if the links have disappeared.  There is a planned release of this performance on CD, but I can't find that it has been released yet.  I'll certainly knock them off of here when it comes out - or before, if needed.

Here are the links anyway:

Thank you very much! I always appreciate those BBC introductions, esp. of older days. I don't think they will include them when releasing the recording...  Wink

At the risk of again making myself seem unreasonably stupid, I must confess that I cannot find the archive where Vaughan Williams' The Solent can be found. I looked in the alphabetical index, the downloads section and the archive from the Unsung Composers site. Could someone point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance - and thanks for the recording, as well!

Don't worry. It always takes me two or three times to find the dandelion thing!
Took me a half-hour today!  Shocked

It seemed straightforward to me, go to the music part of the catalogue, go to the V section and its there! The Walford Davies is under D, Davies, Henry Walford.

You're more than welcome, of course, Jamie. I'd like to know what you think of the Walford Davies Symphony. It strikes me as the sort of work which requires a good few hearings before it begins to fall into shape: from the sombre opening to the final peroration, it's a kaleidoscope of moods and colours. Suffice to say that I have really enjoyed having the opportunity to hear it and that it makes me very eager to hear more of his larger-scale works (orchestral and choral).

Just on my second listening now. Yes, there are certainly some beautiful sounds in it: as for how it works as a whole, it'll take time to get that. I really enjoyed 'Everyman', which is about all I have heard, along with that Violin Sonata, which is pretty good too. Hoping more will be recorded in time.

In fact, three of his violin sonatas have been recorded:

There is also a Dutton CD with chamber music for cello and organ:

Thank you for that information: I shall investigate further. The sonata I have is the Dutton one.

Not sure if I should mention it Grin ,but some interesting posts about the Walford Davies Symphony at the Unsung Composers forum. So much trouble to get the symphony performed,and some enthusiasm,presumably,at first. Doubts set in,I presume?! The pity is that I have seen allot of positive,even enthusiastic responses,on various sites. Now,because Yates decides he isn't too keen on it,the music lovers who might enjoy a cd,can't have it!! Is there anyone else who could record it? Or do Dutton agree?
Of course,as Dundonnell would point out,it's about money as well!

As to me! I haven't heard it yet. I will download it later. Maybe I'll find myself agreeing with the conductor?! Sad Grin
