Now available for download from Chandos:

Many are not entirely new to CD of course, but there are a couple of premieres, and I am especially pleased to see the Hadley piece, having heard it on the wireless a few weeks ago.

Marvellous CD! Even better than Volume 1 in my view. The great discovery for me was Patrick Hadley's 'Kinder Scout' which I've played over and over again. It is under seven minutes and yet I found it deeply affecting. It reminded me a bit of Holst's 'Egdon Heath' and Sibelius's 'Swan of Tuonela'.

I'll buy this for the Cowen: as with volume 1 I do rather wish they had included more premieres.
