Oh my word, the completion of the cycle. A very appropriate cover -



CILGWYN!!!

These performances have now been removed from the British and Irish Music Archive and the catalogue has been updated. The following broadcasts, however, remain available: Symphony No.12 conducted by Grant Llwellyn (2012) and Symphony No.13 conducted by Richard Hickox (1992).

How wonderful of Lyrita to bring this landmark project through to fulfillment.

Bought! Ebay had one of those Black Friday vouchers,so what else could I do? (Resist!? Roll Eyes Grin) The critic on Musicweb suggests that Daniel Jones looks like he's toasting the completion of Lyrita's cycle! And well he might! If only,in spirit (albeit a pint of bitter here!). I say,Cheers to that! I hope Lyrita will consider a cd release of his oratorio St Peter,at some point! But this cycle will do very well for now!! Smiley Smiley Smiley

Another Musicweb review. This one is very enthusiastic. Indeed (and I quote) Nick Barnard observes,"Given the quantity and quality of these thirteen symphonies there is an argument to made for them being the most significant but least appreciated cycle by a British composer bar none."

It's nice to see that due praise is given to Bryden Thomson for shouldering the bulk of the conducting and making such an outstanding job of it.

Yes,it's great;particularly since Bryden Thomson admired his music and would have,obviously,loved to have to have been able to record the symphonies for commercial release. Now we get them on cd,anyway!  Better late than never,eh?!! Roll Eyes Grin And the more Bryden Thomson,the better! One of my favourite conductors.
