Philip Lane, ‘The doyen of British Light Music’ (James Jolly, Gramophone), has collaborated with Heritage for this Spring release – orchestral music composed by leading figures in the Light Music movement.

‘This is a fine addition to the light orchestral discography. Personal highlights for me are David Lyon’s Piano Concerto and Snowdonia. There is excellent, detailed and enthusiastic playing by the RTE Concert Orchestra throughout under the expert guidance of Gavin Sutherland. The music making has brio and bite aplenty and the orchestra is captured in a clear, detailed acoustic. There is also sufficient contrast between the pieces to keep the listener fully entertained for the generous 75 minutes playing time. Highly recommended.’ John Whitmore, MusicWeb International, November 2016
