Congratulations, Jsujo. These all look very fine. The Frank Bridge String Quartets with the Allegri are particularly nice.

Rubbra takes some getting used to, but I love the challenge!
A fine recording of Delius. Beecham does a splendid job considering how easy it is to let Delius become shmaltz. Nice haul, just let me know when you have finished with them.
I forgot to ask, how is the surface on the DG?
The DG, given its age, is pretty quiet....99% of all DGG's I have are pretty quiet...all tulip variety.
tulip??
yes, sir,,,Tulip
What means this 'Tulip'?
Reflects earlier pressings: the design of the band around the outer edge of the label is made from tulips. Later pressings had a plain line on the outer edge.
I recently discovered Delius' 4 violin sonatas, played by Tasmin Little. Highly recommended. It's on Conifer Classics.
thanks for the tip Zinfan2..
