On now. The Ruth Gipps Chandos cd,,which was on pre-order,arrived this morning. First listen! So far I am very impressed by her Fourth Symphony. I was half expecting some watered down VW,pastoral ruminations,but this strikes me as a truly individual voice. I love the clarity of the orchestration. I love her use of horns;and there is an urgency to the narrative that draws me along. Some exciting orchestration,too. The opening immediately caught my attention. I really didn't expect anything as good as this! Huh Smiley I'm now listening to the much earlier tone poem,Knight in Armour. Again,lovely orchestration. Quite bracing. So far,none of that finger twiddling and looking at the mini hi-fi track timings (How long is this going on?!!). Again,I really didn't expect anything this good!! So far,I'm very impressed!! I love that cover photo,by the way!
