Re-reading recent posts which have mentioned record companies and their support for British music I realised that I certainly had omitted to include Naxos. That company has also done wonderful work: the Havergal Brian series obviously,but also complete sets of the symphonies of Stanford, Bax, Alwyn, Arnold spring to mind but there was also, for example, John Gardner's Symphony No.1 and the reissues of the first six Maxwell Davies symphonies.

So...well done to Naxos too  

Their series of recordings by the Bach Choir and Bournemouth SO under David Hill goes from strength to strength - Howells' Stabat mater, Stanford's Stabat mater and soon Dyson's early Choral Symphony and St Paul's Voyage to Melita. The Vernon Handley recording of the latter (s really splendid piece) on Somm is serviceable but let down by an insecure Bournemouth SO Chorus. When the new recording comes out it will make all of Dyson's major choral works available in strong performances:

Choral Symphony, Psalm 107, O Give Thanks Unto the Lord (Hill on Naxos)
In Honour of the City (Hickox on Chandos or Willcocks on Somm)
The Canterbury Pilgrims (Hickox on Chandos)
The Blacksmiths (Willcocks on Somm)
Nebuchadnezzar (Hickox on Chandos)
St Paul's Voyage to Melita (Hill on Naxos)
Quo vadis? (Hickox on Chandos)
Sweet Thames Run Softly (Willcocks on Somm)

A piece is worth your attention, and is itself for you praiseworthy, if it makes you feel you have not wasted your time over it. (SG, 1922)
