Bryden Thomson's Vaughan Williams symphony cycle

Good to see this fine and under appreciated set getting some praise from John Quinn in his interesting review. BBC Music Magazine, many years ago, chose Bryden Thomson's recording of the turbulent Sixth Symphony as their recommended choice in their 'Top 1000 CDs' publication. I've always enjoyed that cycle, especially the 9th Symphony, but all the others are recommendable as far as I'm concerned.
Thank you Jeffrey. I requested this set from Chandos because it preceded MusicWeb so had never been reviewed and I had not heard any of the recordings. I was only able to dip in before handing the set to John but I was impressed with what I heard. Congratulations to John for such a thorough review. We have now requested more Thomson/RVW for review.
