"... excellent and thorough booklet notes by Lewis Foreman."
"There is a lot of stirring Britannic pageantry and brass fanfares, and a wealth of dreamy pastoral effects in these English pieces."
"I noticed that BBC Radio 3 sponsored this recording, winningly conducted by Gavin Sutherland - a noble gesture."
"Phillips was awfully good at it [light music], and I think his name would be better known if he had also done film or ballet music."
Richard Traubner, American Record Guide, November/December 2006
"This writer has reviewed many light music recordings, but few as enjoyable and rewarding as this second volume Dutton has devoted to the legendary Montague Phillips."
"The excellent BBC Concert Orchestra plays for Gavin Sutherland with unstinting gusto and conviction, and Dutton has provided a degree of sonic immediacy and dimensionality that is aurally overwhelming. This may be l'light music' but it is still stupendously impressive and inexhaustibly entertaining."
Paul A Snook, Fanfare, March/April 2007
