Review By Naxos,

"We can only hope Volume 4 will be along very soon; because as Barry Kilpatrick expertly summed up Volume 1, !›DIf he has a good band to work with, count on Keith Brion to put an excellent Sousa recording together. The Royal Artillery Band, founded in 1762, is a very good band.'"

Review By John Fleming ,St. Petersburg Times,

"Naxos has been busy with Bernstein. In one of the budget label's best releases, Marin Alsop conducts Great Britain's Bournemouth Symphony Chorus and Orchestra in Chichester Psalms, his setting of Hebrew texts for boy treble and mixed choir. It also has a suite from his score for the movie "On the Waterfront" and three dances from his 1944 musical "On the Town."

Another recent Naxos disc is unexpectedly poignant in that it shows off how good the Florida Philharmonic Orchestra could be before money problems forced it to fold last spring. James Judd conducts the Candide overture, Symphonic Dances from "West Side Story" and Bernstein's second symphony, "The Age of Anxiety."
