Reviews

‘Jennifer Vyvyan sings with pure tone, sensitivity and admirable phrasing, and William Herbert, everywhere excellent, darts up and down his scale passages with great agility … Anthony Lewis conducts the two works with perception, fervour and affection, and the recording gives a very good balance and string tone with a nice bloom on it.’ Gramophone, August 1955
