City of London Choir and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra under Hilary Davan Wetton, with Claire Rutter (soprano) and violinist Clio Gould. Walton's 'Henry V Suite'; George Butterworth's 'A Shropshire Lad Rhapsody' for orchestra; Parry's 'The Chivalry of the Sea'; Vaughan Williams's 'The Lark Ascending'; and Elgar's 'The Spirit of England'.
(A quintessentially British programme reveals the responses of five great English composers to the trauma of two world wars.)
