"The RAF version of the (Holst) suites is extraordinarily successful. It has a great sense of style and conveys a marvellous projection of high spirits.

"...throughout the band is on splendid form."

"The Vaughan Williams and Grainger couplings are just as distinguished; the recording throughout.. is in the demonstration bracket: it has crisp, clean transients and fine amplitude."
