"The late Trevor Harvey gave a warm and well-deserved welcome to the English, Scottish and Cornish Dances, when these recordings, conducted by the composer, first appeared. Now with Arnold's latest set of Irish Dances added . . . it is even more of a winner. Arnold regularly takes a warmly expressive view without ever sacrificing tension, often springing rhythms infectiously. The analogue sound … is given a splendid transfer. The new items, in digital sound, very well recorded too, bring no feeling of inconsistency. …one after another these little jewels first grab and then delight the ear with their brilliant pastiche of folk melodies. … this is a wonderful box of delights" Edward Greenfield, Gramophone
