Pretty Scottish Orchestral Music

(4 out of 5 stars)
"I was pleased with myself when I heard this recording and thought highly of it, only to see the English magazine, 'Grammaphone' highlight it as a featured album of the month when it came out about 12 years ago. Needless to say, this William Wallace is NOT the same Wallace featured in the movie 'Braveheart', but a Scottish composer of 400 years later. All the works are very pretty, and prettily performed, with the expected influence from Wagner, and none from any more modern composer. Amazon's list price is a bit steep, as it originally listed for around $17, typical of a Hyperion release.
Great if you are fond of early 20th century UK music."
