Alec McCowen narrator
National Symphony Orchestra & Chorus

This is the first International CD Release featuring this recording.
This recording was first released on Decca's HEAD label in 1974.
The CD booklet contains notes in English, French and German and sung/spoken text in English.
“…the recording to me seems first class… and Dorati's sympathy and authority are everywhere to be noted. No-one plays Gerhard's larger scores better than he… it deserves to arouse a lot of interest.”
