I truly urge music lovers everywhere to purchase this. RRB's music is very very sadly neglected. Believe me he's up there with the best. The Partita (1995) is a very refreshing piece, full of surprises, subtle cadences and rhythms. The Reflections on a Scottish Folk Song composed in memory of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother is superb, such a pity she never heard it!
RRB needs someone, somewhere to record more of his work, and there is a lot to discover but but this CD goes someway to enlighten us to just what we are missing.

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

In Defense of Bennett's Late Works 28 Jun. 2015
By James S. Eisenberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Mr. Bennett's opera THE MINES OF SULPHUR was one of the .first large scale atonal works that I ever saw in a theater. Pretty much the entire audience found it a gripping experience. Shortly after, I purchased the RCA recording of his SYMPHONY # 1, which clearly shows the influence of his mentor Elisabeth Lutyens and of his teacher, Pierre Boulez. I really admired those difficult works, but composers often have many different crayons to color with. The much more conservative late works on the current disc are as beautiful and as inventive as the earlier ones, they are just a somewhat softer listen. I am really shocked by the other reviewer's shallow putdown. These are attractive and accessible works and should keep a thoughtful listener enrapt. Jonathan Lemalu's singing is technically strong, and in quiet moments, quite beautiful.
Excellent sound recording, good liner notes and full texts.

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
