They really shouldn't but they do. Once again, St John's have produced a near perfect disc of 20th century British music. This time, Gerald Finzi has been proffered the red carpet and taken it royally with both hands and legs. 'The Flower Songs' are a real treat, with the trebles outshining any soprano line you care to imagine. A long time in the edit suite, but worth it. Buy it this instant.
