You must buy this recording!,
This review is from: Holst - Orchestral Works (Audio CD)
This is a gorgeous recording and one of Naxos' amazing bargains - excelling quality for hardly any money. The "Somerset Rhapsody" is tremendously evocative - full of rousing melodies and brilliantly orchestrated, superbly performed too. The real revelation for me, though, is the "Invocation for Cello and Orchestra", which I would thoroughly recommend to anyone - an absolute gem of a piece - I can't understand how I had never heard it before as it is truly beautiful. The cello performance by Tim Hugh is perfect - very moving. The orchestra reaches inspiring heights too. You should buy this - you can't go wrong!
