I have listened to the new Lyrita Wordsworth a few times now.  I think the Symphony No. 5 is a wonderful and substantial work that I found thoroughly engaging.  The Symphony No. 1 is ok but one of the issues I have with this composer is that the works sound so similar.  I thought the Symphony No. 5 was another movement of the Symphony No. 1.  Compare this with Vaughan Williams who casts a very long shadow on 20th century British symphonists and there is a good reason why.  Great artists really need to traverse tremendous ground and the best do.  But I still consider this a very worthy purchase for No. 5.
