Volume 6 of the Naxos series of English String Miniatures continues with music by composers ranging from Purcell, Holst and William Lloyd Webber, whose name may be more familiar through the achievements of his two sons, to Adam Carse, best known for numerous string pieces for young players, and Malcolm Lipkin, composer of three symphonies. Paul Carr’s A Very English Music is a paean to the English countryside and way of life, while Malcolm Lipkin’s suite From Across La Manche is a celebration of Europe, a spiritual coming together in which symbols of different musical cultures can be heard.
