- Lebrecht Weekly - Ralph Vaughan Williams: Symphonies 2 and 8 (Onyx) (CD Review , Norman Lebrecht - La Scena Musicale Online)
'The eighth symphony, written towards the end of VWís long life, is his shortest and, in some ways, most experimental, playing as it does with tuned gongs, tubular bells and other exotica. Itís sunny, melodic and intellectually undemanding, intended for enjoyment, going nowhere in particular. And it has got some of the best brass playing you will hear all year.'
