3.0 out of 5 stars Parry Best
A reasonable if dated recording, a good starter for anyone who is unfamlier with his other works, you will either like or dilike.

This CD provides a very useful introduction to the music of Hubert Parry, who since the 2011 Royal Wedding and HRH Prince Charles' BBC documentary, is attracting more attention.

There are no samples of his orchestral works here, but some of the more famous choral works notably I was Glad and Blessed Pair of Sirens. The disc is bulked out with some songs with Robert Tear and Phillip Ledger and the final track is Jerusalem.

A good introduction but by no means a 'best-of' issue.

This CD demonstrates the favour Parry's music has found with so many, especially when a touch of majesty (and pomp and circumstance)is required.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sir Hubert Parry, 8 April 2013

Under rated composer and teacher. They don't make them like this anymore, they were of their age . I think their music at that time was very melodic. Can we still write Melodies? I think so but not too often. EW
