Excellent recording, abundant music, superb value.

"This recording is generous in its musical offerings. At mid-price (really super-bargain price on a per disc basis) you get a spendidly recorded and performed account of both symphonies and the marches as fillers. While there are slightly stronger Elgar couplings of the two symphonies with additional pieces (such as Solti on a Decca Double Decker and Previn on a Philips Duo) this set is thoroughly recommendable among the best Elgar recordings available.The recording quality, made in the Abbey Road studios, throughout is luxurious and finely detailed at once (though the sound at the start of the 2nd symphony sounds slightly boxed in). The organ accompaniment in the Coronation March is wonderfully dramatic and powerful. Simply put there is great enjoyment to be found in this set at every turn."

"The reviewer from Shaumburg is absolutely correct in his or her review: the sound of these discs is magnificent and the organ, used in a few tracks, is very "cool" (if that word may be used). If you haven't heard the Pomp Marches in their entirety, here's a great way to do so; all are great compositions. And don't let the inexpensive cost deter you--the recording is luxurious and worth triple the price!"
