Albion, please feel free to add my recently uploaded Irish material to the archive as well!

I certainly will when I get some time to admin. Many thanks!

Hello everyone !
WARNING : in the British and Irish Folder, Ruth Gipps' "Symphony No. 4" (1972) (conducted by John Pritchard) is in four tracks, but the first of these four tracks is not from this symphony, it's the last movement of Peter Racine Fricker's "Symphony No. 3" (1960) conducted by Barry Wordsworth !!!
The 2nd track is the first movement of Gipps' "Symphony No. 4" (Moderato - Allegro molto - Poco meno mosso) ; the 3rd track is the second movement (Adagio) ; and the 4th track includes both the 3rd and 4th movements (Scherzo : Allegretto, and Finale : Andante - Allegro molto).

Thanks! This has been amended and the correct files are now renumbered 1-3.

I have uploaded today's specially-recorded broadcasts of two overtures by William Sterndale Bennett performed by the BBC SO under James Feddeck:

The May Queen, Op.39, originally Marie du Bois (1842, rev. 1844)

Paradise and the Peri, Op.42 (1862)

For completely childish reasons, I'd also suggest you check out the classic

I have just completed uploading a trio of British cello concertos (Berkeley, ApIvor, and Osborne).  Let the record show, however, that these performances were contributed by member Greg K and that my role was limited to some (very minor) assistance with the actual uploads.  Thanks to Greg, as well as sincere apologies for my slothfulness in actually completing the uploads.

Thank you both for your contribution although I think you will find that the Lennox Berkeley Dialogue is already in our Archive in the same performance.

The Denis apIvor Cello Concerto is especially welcome. The Nigel Osborne is not for me.....but others will no doubt appreciate it.

Not to worry Grin We have such a wealth of music in that Archive that it is well-nigh impossible to remember everything Grin

Didn't know that either, or I'd have not put you up to it, Brian.

I now recall that it was actually I who provided the original recording of the performance Roll Eyes Grin

Before however we go any further......it is always worth checking to see if the "duplicate" recording is actually of better sound quality. I know that some of my recordings of the period leave something to be desired and if your recording is better then I would be more than happy to have mine withdrawn and yours substituted!

Somewhat lackluster as I recall finding the piece, my inclination to make the comparison you suggest is correspondingly weak.

Having recently lamented the paucity of recordings of the music of Colin Matthews it is only appropriate that I thank northern for his upload of "Traces Remain"-an affecting and mpressive piece.
