“… Little’s touch is warm and faultless throughout this lovely program and there is a strong chemistry between her and Lenehan. Both Beach and Smyth composed large-scale works – including symphonies and operas – and after hearing this disc many listeners will want to explore their lives and music further. All credit to Little and Chandos for shining more sunlight on them.” ****½

“… It’s [Fire Ritual] a wonderful vehicle for Hemsing, whose intense, rich tone immediately commands attention as she unfolds long, exquisite phrases with delicacy and precision. Beautifully recorded too, with great presence and just the right crispness.” ****

Erik Levi - BBC Music magazine - December 2000
"... The music is classic Alwyn; sturdy, expertly crafted, colorful, and emotionally expressive... Conductor Richard Hickox understands the Alwyn film style and the London Symphony Orchestra gets everything there is to find in the notes. Chandos has captured it all in a rich and detailed sound equal to its other Alwyn outings."

Especially noteworthy among these collected gems are the foremost accounts of his own Liebesfreud and Liebesleid ..."  *****
