The best loved music from Britain’s favourite composers, from early innovators like Handel and Purcell through to 20th century giants including Britten, Vaughan Williams, Holst, Delius, Walton and Elgar.


A superb 3CD collection celebrating all that is joyous about the English classical tradition. There is space too for pastoral in the shape of Delius and Butterworth. This really is an exemplary collection that should be in the collection of any serious classical music fan. Indeed any serious fan of music should investigate such a definitive compilation. Patriotic gems such as Parry's Jerusalem , Elgar's Pomp & Circumstance March #1 better known as alternative national anthem Land Of Hope & Glory and Rule Britannia sit side by side with amazingly evocative pieces with the sublime quality of Handel's Water Music and Holst's Mercury . An absolutely essential compilation that will bring listening pleasure to all.
