Description: Composed in 1905 and revised in 1927, Foulds' work is a powerful and original work which contains traces of old English Puritan tunes in three of its four movements (its only other recording was on a British Music Society special import back in September 1998 [09A039]). Parry's is not otherwise available on CD; a youthful work from 1879-80 and revised in 1883, it is as warm and Brahmsian as you could like while Bantock's five-minute excursion into Jewish music was excised from incidental music for a 1919 play. Paul Watkins (cello), Huw Watkins (piano).
