Here we have a veritable treasure trove of the music of Ralph Vaughan Williams, including the ebullient Overture to The Wasps.

The Lark Ascending is the composer at his calmly lyrical best, and Michael Davisís performance of the solo violin part is simply beautiful.

Those with a fondness for the music of Ralph Vaughan Williams are likely to have heard at least a few of these pieces before, and those familiar with the performing scene in England will probably recognise the name of Vernon Handley. If you belong to neither group, these extraordinarily satisfying performances will almost certainly make you a convert to the former and a loyal new follower of this distinguished conductor.
Reviews

The Wasps overture Ė a rich reading more apt to summon up images of honey bees than wasps
International Record Review

The performances are excellent.
