The very best of British music, with the finest British artists: after a disc of such evergreen light favourites as Elizabethan Serenade and the Dam Busters march, Sir Richard Rodney Bennett takes us from the dizzy displays of Billy Mayerl to the dark despair of Constant Lambert. The late Richard Hickox reveals the charm of the English miniature and presents three string masterpieces; in between, the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge, in definitive accounts of 19th- and 20th-century anthems.
