Michael S. Wright: Heritage Masters CD of Coleridge-Taylor 'includes recordings by the Bournemouth Municipal Orchestra...founded in 1893 by Dan Godfrey'

[Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (1875-1912) is profiled at, which features a comprehensive Works List and a Bibliography by Prof. Dominique-René de Lerma, We are collaborating with the Samuel Coleridge-Taylor Foundation of the U.K.,]

Pearl GEMM CD 9965

Michael S. Wright writes:

Thanks William,

I note that this CD (much welcomed reissue) includes recordings by the Bournemouth Municipal Orchestra which was founded in 1893 by Dan Godfrey and which premiered Coleridge-Taylor’s Symphony in A minor  in 1900. (This seems to get referred to as Dan Godfrey’s orchestra somewhere – is it the same?) Interestingly, I have a copy of Pearl GEMM CD 9965 which previously featured these Godfrey recordings. I hope that this gets reissued again and look out for Clifford Greenwoods 1939  recording of Coleridge-Taylor’s ‘Three Dream Dances’ included.

Kind regards
