Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Vernon Handley – conductor. The Cyprian Goddess-which everyone else calls Aphrodite in Cyprus, and identifies as an "ode" rather than a "symphony"-predated the Celtic Symphony by one year. If not a work of comparable strength or thematic distinction, Bantock knew Richard Strauss' orchestra, and reveled in it without descending to mere imitation. Helena Variations of 1899 is the earliest work here, affectionately modest without sounding like Elgar's Enigma, premiered that same year. Absorbing as it is and a vital release for most Bantockians, it would probably not be the best place to begin investigating GB's music.

Vernon Handley, Royal Philharmonic - Bantock: Sapphic Poem and Sappho, Disc NM, Case NM, Format: Music CD, Hyperion Records. Classical music CD release from Vernon Handley, Royal Philharmonic with the album Bantock: Sapphic Poem and Sappho. Released on the label Hyperion Records. The text was fashioned by Bantock's wife, Helena, and is a remarkable achievement. This song cycle is beautifully conceived and is characterized by Bantock's sensitive and colorful orchestral writing. Vernon Handley and the Royal Philharmonic turn in an excellent performance. The song cycle begins with a prelude that presents the themes of the first songs and sets the stage for what is to follow. The songs require a dramatic reading and Susan Bickley is up to the challenge: they require a range of emotion from ecstatic to sad.

Granville Bantock is still waiting for his music to be discovered. His music is lush and mostly written for large orchestra. His music is littered with glorious themes and harmonies and there is almost never a dull moment. This 6 CD set defies criticism. The performances are staggeringly wonderful and the recording is faultless. Bantock loved his brass, horns and percussion and the engineers have managed to capture all of these disparate instruments to utter perfection  . 1 The Cyprian Goddess Symphony No 3 6 The Helena Variations Orchestral variations on the theme HFB 19 Dante and Beatrice Poem for orchestra.

Dante and Beatrice is a painting dated 1883 by the artist Henry Holiday that is on display in the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, England. It is considered to be Holiday's most important painting. It is executed in oil on canvas, measuring 14. centimetres (56 in) by 20. centimetres (80 in) and was purchased by the gallery in 1884. When he died, Holiday was described as "the last Pre-Raphaelite".
