Re: Vaughan Williams' Sancta Civitas and Dona Nobis Pacem on Naxos

Jeffrey, it's surprising that only a handful of BBC Radio Classics recordings have made it on to Legends. Perhaps it's because BBCL is an artist-led label and a number of the artists whose recordings came out on BBCRC weren't "stellar names". But, as you very rightly say, there was some most interesting repertoire on that label and your reference to Morning Heroes - a fine work - reminds me of another Bliss disc on BBCRC on which Sir Arthur conducted the Violin Concerto (Campoli) and the ballet, The Lady of Shallot. To the best of my knowledge the latter has not otherwise been recorded.
