Perfect Fool (Ballet) Toccata for Piano
Welsh and English Folksongs & This I have Done…

BBC & London
Philharmonic Orchestras
Sir Adrian Boult
BBC Northern Singers
Stephen Wilkinson

“(Hymn) a fine and vital performance that vividly conveys the exultant and the mystical nature … Egdon Heath is unforgettable: often frightening and desolate, here and there calm and serene, but never sun-lit. Holst did indeed find in Hardy’s description a map of his soul … I cannot imagine a better performance than this one” (Folksongs) “all these settings are beautiful and are sung with warm tone and blend. The collection ends with the finest song of all, This have I done for my true love, an original piece that ranks with any short unaccompanied choral work by any composer. The recording … is first-rate” (Gramophone)
