…I particularly enjoyed renewing my acquaintance with Patrick Hadley’s symphonic ballad ‘The Trees so High’. Dating from 1931, it serves up a potent brew of frequently heart-stopping beauty and slumbering anguish – a distant cousin if you will, to Vaughan Williams’s ‘A Pastoral Symphony’.
Gramophone

David Wilson-Johnson sings with gravity and sensitivity and Matthias Bamert draws a deeply felt and committed performance from the Philharmonia Chorus and Orchestra. Strongly recommended.
BBC Music Magazine

‘Magical’ is a word that comes to mind for a reissue that contains impressionist English music at its most poignant… if you enjoy the British way of music-making, you will find this reissue an essential addition to your library, both for the Sainton curios and the Hadley masterpieces.
American Record Guide

…the music conveys a wistful, often disturbing intensity unusual for an English work of the period… this is headily evocative stuff, and Anglophiles everywhere will surely want to add this sumptuous-sounding CD to their collections.
