Chandos 241-43

Dyson: The Canterbury Pilgrims; At the Tabard Inn; In Honour of the City – Yvonne Kenny (soprano), Robert Tear (tenor), Stephen Roberts (baritone), London Symphony Chorus, London Symphony Orchestra, Richard Hickox

The re-release of this pioneering account of The Canterbury Pilgrims forms part of the new Hickox Legacy commemorative series on Chandos Records, leading up to (and continuing beyond) the fifth anniversary, in November 2013, of the conductor’s untimely death. The Canterbury Pilgrims, a colourful but neglected work by Sir George Dyson, brilliantly depicts assorted characters from the Prologue of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, and this recorded interpretation highlights key aspects of Hickox’s recorded legacy: the championing of neglected repertoire in general, and British repertoire in particular, as well as a special affinity with choral music.



 "...The couplings are generous and wellplanne... this is as fine a recording as one could wish for. The sound is warm, balanced, and detailed, much like the performance ..."

Barnaby Rayfield - Fanfare - January/February 2013


"...A splendid set, containing some hugely enjoyable music in first rate performances."

John Quinn  - MusicWeb-International.com - 4 October 2012


“Indispensable listening for lovers of late-Romantic English music. “

Michael Cookson – MusicWeb-International.com - 1 November 2012 


"Chandos has been honoring the late Richard Hickox, who died four years ago, with a series entitled The Hickox Legacy... Dyson was the sort of composer the British love: musically conservative and often composing on Brit-centric topics. His monumental choral work The Canterbury Pilgrims (1930) made him famous. Later he added to it a lengthy instrumental overture, “At the Tabard Inn,” using themes from the earlier work; it opens this set. Filling out the second disc is his first major choral work, In Honour of the City (1928). While the sections for solo vocalists are more noodley than melodic and thus lack the appeal of the transcendent choral parts and the relatively daring instrumental stretches, overall it’s an impressive work within the context of the English choral tradition, and it’s performed vividly by an exceptional set of soloists and the home team ensembles."
