Hear, hear! Well done, indeed, Colin - thank you very much for your endeavours. And well done, Mr Antony Smith, for his full, informative and largely encouraging response.

Persistence, yes. "Tactful"? Oh, I couldn't claim that! I deliberately claimed that "a blanket of silence " had descended over Lyrita. That appears to have annoyed the company enough to produce the lengthy response.
I do not regret my "dramatic" turn of phrase. It got a result....and a more informative response than even I expected.

Could I just add that there is one work mentioned in Antony Smith's response copied above- a work recently broadcast by the BBC- which is the subject of ongoing negotiation and which the company does not wish to publicise.
In these circumstances, which I entirely appreciate, it would be sensible if we did not comment on here any further about it. Whether we like it or not (and we usually do like it) what we say about particular works can be picked up and appear elsewhere.

Well, sometimes you have to irritate in order to get results. Incidentally, the REAM2139 British Orchestral Premieres (4 CD set) is wrongly attributed to the Itter Broadcast legacy. It is, as I am sure readers and contributors to this forum know, a compilation of music all of which I researched for releases by Cameo Classics, and nothing to do with Richard Itter.

'we might produce more than our core customers can consume'; no problem, there're so many uninteresting releases these days so I don't worry about more Daniel Jones. Thanks all.

Indeed! It was a somewhat odd remark to make but I was too grateful to get a response (at last) from the company that I had no desire to start picking holes in it.

You are clearly absolutely correct to make the point about Cameo Classics, Gareth. I shall leave it up to you to decide whether to take this up with Lyrita Smiley

The end of June (2019) has come and gone. A new Daniel Jones CD from Lyrita still seems not to be on the horizon......

Surprise, surprise....this has not gone unnoticed by me Roll Eyes

Yes, June has come and gone and so, apparently, will July.

I have been sorely tempted to point this out on the Musicweb noticeboard. The last time I pointed out the non-appearance of promised cds -some months ago- an obviously annoyed Antony Smith of Nimbus (Lyrita) went public in stating that the next Daniel Jones cd would be issued in June and the final instalment of the symphonic series in November. He evidently feels no great need to say why this promise is not being fulfilled.

I have said this before but I shall repeat: record companies have loyal customers who wait for promised releases. There may well be perfectly sound reasons for a delay in issuing these but if I ran a record company I would feel under some obligation to keep in touch with my customers and explain the delay. Amazon has grown exceedingly rich. It doesn't need to apologise for a delay in delivery. I was promised the delivery of a book today. I got an emailed apology for it not being delivered and a new date. That is good customer relations!

And,if I'm correct (am I?) you can fit the remaining symphonies on,just one cd? (Am I right,Dundonnell?!!) More's the pity,when we are that close to having the complete cycle on cd!! Sad

Symphonies Nos.3 and 5 were scheduled for June and Nos. 12 and 13 for November. That was the plan🙄
