The music of John Jeffreys is an absolute delight - overtly Romantic and non-modernist, very much in the tradition of Delius, Warlock and Vaughan Williams. Here a number of delicious orchestral works of stunning beauty are accompanied by fine dramatic vocal works and a Suite of Variations for piano. This recording is essential for anyone interested in the English pastoral tradition - or just in exquisite music.
 

"John Jeffrey’s conservative yet varied music makes for a satisfying collection."

Edward Greenfield

Gramophone - October 2010

“[Jeffreys’][Partridge disc was highly enjoyable but in some ways this latest one scores higher because it presents music in more than one genre by this interesting composer. [Serenade] is a lovely little piece... This disc continues and expands the favourable impression made on me[by the previous on]. John Jeffreys is a sincere composer with something to say – and that something is worth hearing, This disc offers an excellent introduction to his music.”

John Quinn

Music Web

“An instinctive fondness for melodic lines and rich contemplative gestures...unmistakable overtones of Delius and Frank Bridge. [Elegy for John Fry] is a warm and peaceful tribute...Poem for End.. is a substantial work, beautifully paced and scored. Gentle passions and distinctive craftsmanship.” 

Patric Standford

Music and Vision

“Under-rated composer John Jeffreys’ orchestral pieces are very much songs without words. The stand-out work is Poem for End.”

Peter Palmer

Nottingham Post

“Mournful, evocative music, definitely stemming from the heart but devoid of any saccharine sentimentality. Traditional, tonal, solid old-school writing. The instrumentation is keen; Elegy for John Fry... could stand head-to-head with works in the genre by Elgar and Vaughan Williams. The recording has lot of body and creates a natural perspective and sense of open space.”
