Description: The latest volume in this ongoing series has the usual variegated array of compositions with, perhaps, the most immediately impressive being Morgan’s groups of folk music settings (unlike compatriots Hoddinott and Mathias, Morgan uses real folk songs), and Blyton’s tone-poemish suite of character pieces. Royal Ballet Sinfonia; Gavin Sutherland, BBC Concert Orchestra; Barry Wordsworth (André Charlot).
