I'm very much looking forward to my 'Ships', and I think what has been said about Holbrooke and symphonic argument or even 'sense of occasion' applies also to Bantock's symphonies, which are all pleasant but have never grabbed me in the way Omar Khayyam did. My favourite Holbrooke must remain 'The Bells', and I hope for a proper commercial recording of it, though the broadcast we have here serves fine at the moment. I would also love to hear at least one of the operas, though I imagine it's unlikely I ever will.
