For me the 'core' George Lloyd Symphonies are numbers 4-8. These are the ones I come back to knowing that they will deliver dramatic sweep and melodies that lodge and will hold the attention and affection. It's probably me but numbers 1-2 and 9-12 have tended to leave me unmoved; that's MY problem. I must go back and try Pervigilium Veneris and the Symphonic Mass again. Meantime I would recommend symphony 6 as the ideal Lloyd embarkation point and then it's worth exploring numbers 7, 4, 5 and 8 in that order. Rob
