Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

The pleasure of a good compilation is finding a mix of the expected and unexpected, the familiar and unfamiliar. The former offers the calm of reassurance, the latter the frisson of discovery. This anthology of pieces, compiled by the National Trust, works superbly well, and in addition to fulfilling its advertised aim of being an aid to relaxation, is a mine of gorgeous little-known musical gems. The Slow Minuet from Lady Radnor's Suite by Parry is simply exquisite (and beautifully played by the English String Orchestra under William Boughton), as is the Phantasy for Viola and Orchestra by Bax. There are some excellent performances of the more popular pieces too: Kathryn Stott gives an ethereal account of Debussy's Reflets dans l'eau and the Britten Sinfonia sounds marvellously lush in Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis. The liner notes make rather spurious and heavy-handed links between each piece and various properties of the National Trust, but this is a small drawback to an otherwise fine compilation. --Warwick Thompson
