'This is music for an English summer evening, with a glass of wine to hand—rewarding in its unpretentious, melodious, nicely crafted way; especially when played with sympathy and elegance by Robert Salter and the excellent Guildhall Strings and so naturally balanced and recorded by Andrew Keener. Don't miss it' (Gramophone)

'The performances by Guildhall Strings are energetic and precise. Though a relatively small ensemble of 11 strings, they possess a Protean ability to convey a much plusher sound as required … Dare we hope this CD will mark the beginning of a break for Milford? He's long overdue one' (Fanfare, USA)

Two Orchestral Interludes, Op 19e
composer
originally scored for piano duet

Introduction
These two short pieces for flute, piano and strings were first written as easy piano duets, dedicated to Ludgrove School and published by Oxford University Press in 1930. The second was published in an arrangement for organ and both appear as interludes in Milford’s children’s cantata Rain, Wind and Sunshine. In their present form they are unpublished. Both feature traditional tunes, the first D’ye Ken John Peel, the second Drink to me only with thine eyes.
