"The most enjoyable performances are the nine items featuring the London Brass and/or the English Chamber Orchestra. A very stylist Trumpet Tune with soloist Andrew Crowley opens proceedings. This is followed by an equally impressive Zadok the Priest . The Gloria in Excelsis of Stanford is splendid stuff very much along the lines of Parry's I was Glad. The disc comes to an inspiring finish with Gordon Jacob's Fanfare and arrangement of the National Anthem. The performances are crisp, lightly sprung and full-toned, all captured in spectacular fashion by the engineers in the Abbey's reverberant acoustic. Played at high volume it sounds terrific. The decay time is around 5 seconds but the recording is in no way compromised by this.... A fine commemorative collection in spectacular sound. " John Witmore - Music on the Web"
