I agree strongly about the Meditations on a theme by Blow, Colin. Described as 'amiable but rambling' in one review I read, I find it to be a very powerful and moving work, which together with Morning Heroes and the Oboe Quintet, represent Bliss at his best in my view. Adam Zero is another work I like very much. Haven't got my head round The Beatitudes yet but that new Dutton CD is a fine one restoring Bliss's fine recording of Things to Come, which unlike many other recordings includes the track 'Machines' which is one of the best parts of the score!
