New for May 2018:

INA BOYLE (1889-1967): Symphony No. 1 “Glencree” (In the Wicklow Hills), Violin Concerto, Overture for Orchestra, A Sea Poem, Psalm for Cello and Orchestra, Colin Clout (A Pastoral after Spenser’s “The Shepheard’s Calender”), Wildgeese for Small Orchestra

Label: Dutton Epoch
Format: SACD hybrid

Boyle was Irish and lived her entire life in the family home in Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow. She took composition lessons from two English musicians resident for a time in Dublin but her most important teacher and frien was Vaughan Williams whom she visited with works in prgoress and completed scores, whenever she could, from 1923-37. All but three of these seven works come from that period, so VW’s voice is ever present in mood and orchestral color and, in her use of low brass, Bax may spring to mind. The two largest pieces are the 21-minute symphony whose three movements - On Lacken Hill, Nightwinds in the Valley and Above Lough Bray - could work as independent tone-poems of landscape while the gently melancholic and nostalgic concerto of 17 minutes is a response to the death of Boyle’s mother in 1932. Much to savor for collectors of VW and of conservative British music. Benjamin Baker (violin), Nadège Rochat (cello), BBC Concert Orchestra; Ronald Corp

This disc has already been discussed at some length in the Dutton thread.
