A marvelous close of this box with 35 CD'S of goodies, all arrangements done in good taste with here and there a piece, that goes a bit over the top. Especially the arranger Peter March has a hand in this. John Lanchbery is adding his bit with a tad too much bombast in his arrangements. but it's all above board, although not always effective. The sound is good, but I expected a bit more bloom from this hall, and a bit more effort from the engineer to get that. Altogether I heard better sound from this source. It will take some time before I return to this box, but another one is lined up with 10 CD'S also on the label DECCA, with little or no overlap. Looking forward to that.
