Thanks for your reply Dominy. I cannot get into the technicalities I am afraid. Just what my ear tells me as a Delian of 43 years now. Of course the Du Pre is definative, But to me overall this disc,with all the latest technology does not match the feeling of the previous EMI 1960-70s Delius recordings. Delius is a feeling and mood. I think that is missing in our day. We are too materialistic,too much with machines. My two Danacord Delius discs, Danish Masterworks, Norwegian Masterworks, hit the spot, there is a notable feeling in them. REgards, Jack
