This music is great! Beautiful orchestration and great music. It is very 'strong' in places and 'soft' in other places.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware 16 Mar 2007
By Christella B. Krebs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Mr Bennet has always been one of my favorite contemporary composers; but this Chandos recording of four of his works for Orchestra, is not his best output....

I should have listened to the samples provided, before I purchased the disc. I did not. The best piece on this recording conducted by Richard Hickox was his 1999 "Reflections on a Sixteenth Century Tune"...But do not look for any Sixteenth Century modes: there just aren't any! Still, this is a pleasing piece; unlike the others [A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME] which I found IRRITATING.

Particularly annoying were the recent 2003: "Songs before Sleep".

Hah! Before Sleep? The wobble of bass Jonathan Lemalu on these songs makes the Song Cycle anything but condusive to sleep. It was so atrocious and annoying...impossible to appreciate. If one is hoping for a lush baritone, stay far clear of Jonathan Lemalu; his voice is reminiscent of

the worst moments of Thomas Allen. I was unable to find one enriching, pleasant song in the cycle....Sorry Mr. Bennet: you should have supervised this recording....DER TRIVIAL DRECK
