Beautiful Muzak!
09/28/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"With this set from the Royal Philharmonic, you can't beat the price, the musical selection/sequence or the performance. I've heard some of this music used as break music for NPR's Music of the Night. My favorite selections are the Delius (2 Aquarelles) and Walton (Henry V) pieces. Elgar's peaceful Introduction and Allegro is a satisfying prelude to this collection of worthwhile English string music. Although I find the Purcell finale a little jarring in its forcefulness, the overall feeling culled from this collection of generally one of elegiac and meditative calm. In short, it's Muzak without the cheese.I'm sorry to know that this recording is out of stock. I hope Intersound restocks this item, because I believe many people would agree with me after a few listens: you can't beat the price, the music selection or the performance of these wonderful musical diversions."
