'Even by his own standards, this disc is an outstanding achievement for the indefatigable Hickox. The ‘filler’ comes first – a bracing account of The Wasps overture written in 1909 while Vaughan Williams was completing the main work, his Symphony No. 1, ‘A Sea Symphony’, a four movement choral setting of Walt Whitman verses. Few versions since Boult’s classic first recording have exuded such sheer exhilaration and depth of felling as the one featured here and, of course the 1952 recorded sound bears no comparison with Chandos’s. With two gifted soloists, this elegantly presented and superbly engineered disc must now be the frontrunner for the work.'
