"Marriner and the Academy draw out all the romantic warmth of both scores, and the sound is richly atmospheric to match, with a sharper focus and a keener sense of presence than on some recordings from this source. The Hamlet music may not match Henry V in sustained invention, but I certainly look forward to more issues in Chandos's splendid Walton series devoted to the results of Christopher Palmer's researches."
(Gramophone)
