New Release from Lyrita

This is an interesting offering from Lyrita – but the two eye openers for me are Contrasts by the Welsh composer David Morgan and the Symphonic Poem: Macbeth by Henry Hugo Pierson.

This CD balances works that are relatively well known with one that has been ignored for generations and one that just demands recognition. Most of the pieces are available elsewhere, and I guess British music enthusiasts will have these alternative recordings. My bottom line is that this CD is well worth the price for the Pierson and more especially for the David Morgan alone. The other five works are attractive and interesting additions to this ‘must have’ CD.
