Rutland Boughton
Ethel Smyth
Benjamin Britten
William Mathias
Edward German
Malcolm Arnold

Harrison Birtwistle  (only joking! Roll Eyes Grin )
A shame to leave Delius out,in a way,because,while his stuff does meander around,North Country Sketches and Eventyr are,actually,two of my favourite British orchestral works!
I might add Ruth Gipps,based on the stunning orchestral works I know from that Chandos cd! (Come on Chandos! Roll Eyes Grin)
