Armstrong Gibbs was once a favourite composer of local choral societies, but his masterpiece, the choral symphony Odysseus, has seldom been heard because it immediately preceded the Second World War and afterwards never really established itself. Yet it is a cherishable score, and if you like Vaughan Williams's A Sea Symphony you will love this tuneful and evocative work. Here Susan Gritton and Mark Stone revel in their roles as soprano and baritone soloists respectively. Telling the familiar story of Odysseus's legendary wanderings around the eastern Mediterranean after the fall of Troy , and his return to Ithaca , Odysseus , which in fact is Gibbs's second symphony has long been requested by enthusiasts. It is vividly realised by the London Oriana Choir and the BBC Concert Orchestra conducted by David Drummond. The choir also make Four Songs for Sailors, Dyson's tuneful songs for chorus, strings, brass and timpani, sound effortless, and with the work's theme of ships and sailors is the perfect complement to Armstrong Gibbs's epic vision.
