What more can one say about Delius that hasn't been said already? So I won't try. This particular collection of 19 tracks includes all his greatest hits and some seldom-heard selections ("Fennimore and Gerda" and two songs "to be sung on a summer night on the water"). All are performed with elegant clarity and professionalism, most by the London philharmonic and symphony orchestras. A beautiful collection on two discs.
