Looking back at the booklet notes by Gareth Vaughan which accompanied this release, I see that I misread his information regarding the work Out of the mist. He does indeed give credit to David Brown for the discovery of the work in a second-hand bookshop, and I must convey to Mr Brown my heartfelt apologies for my error. A more careful reading of Gareth Vaughan's notes would have clearly shown that he thanks David Brown for the information which he included there. And rightly so: this is a work whose neglect is quite incomprehensible, and we should be extremely grateful to Mr Brown for his instincts and keen eye in saving it from what would presumably have been extinction. The fact that the work has now received TWO recordings must be regarded as a testimonial to its quality.
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
