I have three other recordings of the Five Tudor Portraits (Willcocks, Wetton, Boult) but this is the best of all and has the greatest urgency. I have come late to an appreciation of this work but the combination of Hickock's fine performance together with a vivid Chandos recording is a winner. Of course the Willcocks version is a classic one and I would not be without that either (and you get the fine and rarely recorded 'Benedicte' on the EMI CD as well as the Jacques Orchestra's lovely recording of the Five Variants on Dives and Lazarus on the same CD; Chandos is just as good in the latter. Overall a super disc. If you get the chance do listen to the Bould version on the defunct Intaglio label together with the 'Thansgiving for Victory' but it tends to be ridiculously priced online.

The Tudor Portraits here are just fantastic pieces of music. Funny, witty, vulgar in places and brimming with character. I suspect RVW had alot of fun writing these, it certainly shows. Not the best known because the ensemble and balance of music is a bit and pulling off the characterisation is a challenge for the soloists. Mmm, how do you mourn a pet sparrow, or sound effectively drunk and only on the edge of in tune...

I have always loved Vaughan Williams compositions and arrangements and this one is typical of his genius at putting an orchestra and choir together. another superb result especially the Dives and Lazarus

Beautiful music I'd heard part of on the car radio, just a short excerpt, and decided the whole was a 'must have'! Thank you for making my day in the blink of an eye.
