Re: Rootham's Symphony 1 (Lyrita boxed set)
Thank you Gwyn for your reply to my message and let me reiterate how much I enjoyed your excellent review of the new Lyrita set which I am eagerly anticipating receiving. I hope that you enjoy the Rootham Symphony more second time around. To me it has a warm, bracing, open-air and outward looking demeanour - a reflection of the composer perhaps. I don't know if you know the Second Symphony, recently issued on Lyrita. It is very different, written at the very end of Rootham's life and, in its final moments, incredibly touching. All best wishes. Jeffrey
