Description: A cantata based on Hugh the Drover, A Cotswold Romance contains 40 minutes of V-W in his best English folk-derived vein, offering a portrait of the English countryside and country people as stylized, and as evocative, as a Constable landscape. Tintagiles, incidental music for a Maeterlinck play, speaks a more universal language, while being unmistakably from this composer's pen. A dark little tragedy, this has pre-echoes of V-W's third symphony, and even the later, bleaker, fourth and sixth symphonies. If you missed it the first time... London Symphony Orchestra; Richard Hickox. Original 1998 release.
