As an avid anglophile, I am always eager to buy especially neglected repertoire, and since reading Mr Greenbank's excellent review of the Cooke I bought the disc and found it stood up well to his comments, yes the sound is vintage but for its age is excellent and I have heard a lot worse modern recordings even on SACD, and in light of the recent Wordsworth review, that will certainly be on my next order. I have a number of the Lyrita off air recordings now and have always found them to have a pleasing sound quality!
