Along with Bryden Thomson, Handley was for me one of the best VW interpreters of his generation. This - the 5th and Flos Campi - was his finest moment. At full price it would be a bargain; at its current giveaway it's one of the best purchases in British classical music. I'd give it six stars if I could.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Bill Glen TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 2 April 2014

As the previous commentator asserts this is amongst the very best, both as sound and performances. I recollect buying this shortly after it's initial release in the late 80s and it had just won an award at the time. This is an altogether special disc even by the exceptionally high standards of Handley's other recordings of English music.

By Nicholas Casley TOP 500 REVIEWER on 4 Mar. 2015
Format: Audio CD
Vernon Handley’s interpretations of Vaughan Williams’s symphonies with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic are mixed bag: some very good, some indifferent, none ever bad.

His interpretation of the fifth symphony was recorded in 1986. The fifth is one of my favourite symphonies, but somehow I was not moved by the first movement. The sound quality is not particularly good, especially at the climaxes. (It was originally released on LP under the Music for Pleasure label, the cheap end of EMI’s classical releases.) Thankfully, the second movement improves in quality, being clear and bright in its soundworld, and Handley manages to produce an excellent third movement, and the fourth's good too.

Overall, this is a steady and competent interpretation, but not outstanding. The same can be said of the disc other piece, Vaughan William’s ‘Flos Campi’, a romantic piece for orchestra with a viola solo and wordless chorus.

Masterly RVW 5th Symphony from (Tod) Handley 1 Mar. 2015
By Michael J Lord - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In an ever growing and more crowded field with a symphony that's been quite fortunate in terms of the number of excellent recordings it has been given, the late Vernon (Tod) Handley's reading of RVW's 5th symphony with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic still stands tall and shines. Handley gives Vaughan Williams' masterful 5th, with its broad structure, a spacious yet concentrated reading that is superbly played by the RLPO, and given a fantastic, warm, early digital recording by the EMI engineers. A fine reading of the somewhat rare Flos Campi Suite makes an attractive companion piece. It doesn't get any better than this folks! A must have recording even at full price.
