Re: Hely-Hutchinson Christmas Carol Symphony

This seems to be the season for starting threads about works which are actively disliked. First it was Strauss's Alpine Symphony and now Hely-Hutchinson's Carol Symphony.
I doubt if anyone would claim that the Carol Symphony is great music. It isn't. But it brings pleasure to many at this time of year. If you don't like it then that's fine-avoid it, don't listen to it. But I am unrepentant in finding the very occasional listen an innocent delight.
