Stanford Symphonies. CHAN 9279

With its almost Brahmsian scope and manner, the Third Symphony is perhaps the most famous. Like many of the composer's other compositions, it incorporates the idiom of Irish folk music, even authentic folk-tunes. The Fifth Symphony is brimming with easy melody, and the Sixth and Seventh, too, are full of interesting and memorable ideas.

The numerous Chandos recordings of the Ulster Orchestra and Vernon Handley, one of the most famous conductors of British music, are regarded as classics of the digital era.
