Boyce's 8 Symphonies have long been one of my favourite weapons against an attack of the doldrums. The compose may have spent much of his life in the shadow of the great Handel, but the Englshman had his own unique gift for a good tune - often based around catchy rhythmic figures. I have just discovered these Ouvertures (frequently an alternative title for a Symphony in the eighteenth century) and this charming, life-affirming music is just as upliifting as the better known Symphonies when played with such verve and brio as here. Resist music and performances if you can.

William Boyce Composer was a new name to me but having heard some of his work I felt compelled to learn more.
The 3 CDs I have bought --especially this one-- have reinforced my belief that more people should be made aware of the Boyce talent.

arrived on time well packaged and the bonus of a free mp3 version of the cd's which can be added to your amazon music library is excellent. Boyce is a composer I only recently became aware of after hearing a piece on the radio. The music is fantastic if you've become a little tired of yet another overplayed Handel piece the Boyce is an excellent alternetive go on give the Largo's a rest for a while. The recordings are very high calibre too.

I have long loved Boyce's 8 symphonies and was delighted to come across this MP3 album. The only possible criticism relates to the title, which should correctly be 12 Overtures / Concerti Grossi. the music is pure Boyce magic.
