McCabe's Sixth is not the only of his symphonies to suffer neglect or to deserve to be commercially recorded (so too does his Third for example) but it is his least known. The reason is that the Symphony on a Pavane-as it is also titled- has only, to my knowledge, been performed once. That was in a concert in London given by the London Philharmonic conducted by Steven Sloane. For some reason the BBC chose not to broadcast the concert. Thus the McCabe 6th is one of a tiny handful of symphonies by leading British composers for which we do not even have an off-air recording.

The only other mature symphonies I can think of which fall into this category would be Arnold Cooke's 2nd and Anthony Milner's 3rd. Wordsworth's 6th has never even been performed
