Wrote the superb critic Hubert Culot for MusicWeb-International:

“Malcolm Arnold’s two sets of English Dances are certainly – and deservedly – among his most popular works. Adrian Boult’s 1954 recording with the London Philharmonic Orchestra (Arnold’s orchestra) is the earliest one ever available commercially. His was the first recording of any Arnold work I bought as a teenager and I still have my literally worn-out copy of that wonderful Ace of Clubs LP. Boult’s is one of the finest recordings of these beloved pieces (the finest of all is, I believe, that by Arnold and the LPO on Lyrita), and its 1954 sound still wears well.”

Incidentally, there are excellent liner notes on the reverse side of the jacket by Roy Budden (Elgar) and Malcolm Rayment (Arnold), printed in English only. The front cover design is uncredited.
