Description: William Alwyn's second wife scored 35 films between 1947 and 1954, of which an hour's worth are offered here in suite form, courtesy of arranger Philip Lane. All of these scores are vibrant, active pieces using a full orchestra and East Anglian Holiday is, effectively, a 15-minute British pastoral tone poem. BBC Concert Orchestra; Gavin Sutherland.
