This is a very good collection of English music, with very good choices from a variety of composers, and easy enough for intermediate level pianists to master. I am really pleased to have it.

A superb value compilation in one small album representing mainly twentieth century British music. Eminently playable and sight readable from faithful arrangements by Davies and Norton. To have Delius's 'Walk to the Paradise Garden' a Britten 'Sea Interlude' and two 'Planets'[ a rather dissected 'Jupiter']in with 'Land of Hope and Glory', 'Jerusalem' and the 'Archers' signature tune is a wonderful idea. These gems presented between fine pieces by Finzi, Ireland,Maxwell-Davies and recent increasingly popular works by Karl Jenkins.

Bought this for the transcription of Eclogue by Finzi and a little disappointed in it. First page sounds reasonably authentic but when the key modulates on 2nd page just sounds strange. However it has introduced me to some pieces by other British composers that I wouldn't otherwise have played - so 4 stars for that. Level is around grade 5 - 6 I think.
