Gosh, is this the first time Mackenzie has been Composer of the Week?

Mackenzie has been featured before, but lumped in with those other "Scottish Romantics" MacCunn and McEwen - this is his first 'solo' outing. I am slightly disappointed that the only substantial 'new' recording is of the Canadian Rhapsody, Op.67 and the rest (apart from the songs and partsongs) is reliant upon commercial discs all of which I have: there is certainly room in the catalogue for more Mackenzie, especially choral works such as The Rose of Sharon (1884), The Dream of Jubal (1889), The Sun-God's Return (1910) and orchestral pieces including the First Scottish Rhapsody (1879), the Suite London Day-by-Day (1902) and Tam o'Shanter (1911). Still, such exposure on Radio 3 can only do his cause good.

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)
