Haydn Wood: Listings of Music Recorded on the Guild Light Music Series.


Recently I posted a listing of music by Eric Coates available on the Guild Light Music Series. I decided to do the same exercise for Haydn Wood. Luckily for the collector or enthusiast, many of the numbers listed below appear on one CD which Guild dedicated to the music of Haydn wood (GLCD 5121). The other major sources of works by this composer are the two Marco Polo CDs (8. 223605 & 223402), The Violin Concerto has been released on Dutton Epoch CDLX7245 and the fine Piano Concerto on Hyperion CDA67127
There are a number of works listed below which are not easily available on any other disc. I guess that this includes the Cities of Romance Suite: Seville, the Stanford Rhapsody and the two movements from the Moods Suite.

-- any relation of Curzon's (Dance of an)Ostracised Imp?

I reckon they are related somewhere on the family tree! Along with Harry Farjeon's Goblins...
