“What makes this CD especially memorable is one of the couplings; a moving elegy for strings In Memoriam of Rupert Brook, by Australian Frederick Septimus Kelly.” David Mellor, The Mail on Sunday

The best-known … work on this CD … is Elgar’s The Spirit of England, given a stirring performance under David Lloyd-Jones, with Susan Gritton and Andrew Kennedy as soprano and tenor soloists … It [F S Kelly’s Elegy for Strings] is a beautiful piece, which should be heard more often … Finally there is Out of the Mist, by Lilian Elkington … a Bantock pupil. This affecting piece was inspired by the arrival of the Unknown Warrior’s body in England in 1920.”   The Sunday Telegraph, 2007

“…a fascinating disc, offering first recordings of five war-inspired works.” The Penguin Guide
