Haydn Wood and his contemporary, Eric Coates, were giants on the British music scene during the first half of the last century, firstly as successful ballad writers, then as orchestral composers whose works were played frequently at concerts and on the radio. The high public profile enjoyed by Coates may have eclipsed the considerable achievements of Haydn Wood, but it cannot be denied that the man who created Roses of Picardy deserves to be remembered for so much more. Many people will be surprised at Haydn Wood's versatility as revealed in this choice of his impressive music, and it is good to hear three works conducted by the composer himself.
