“The most substantial offering here – the resourceful and magnificently crafted Concerto for String Orchestra – dates from 1949, and David Lloyd-Jones and his admirably prepared group give a performance which, in its emotional scope and keen vigour, outshines Sir Adrian Boult’s (now deleted) 1966 radio recording with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Lloyd-Jones…gives a sparkling account of the immensely engaging Divertimento…the rumbustious concluding ‘Jig’ (track 13) is as good a place as any to sample the spick-and-span response of the Northern Chamber Orchestra.”  Gramophone Magazine, Classical Good CD Guide
