‘Classical CD of the week’  Daily Telegraph 29 April 2000

“This fresh and imaginative piece boasts a seemingly inexhaustible flow of delightful melody and countless felicitous examples of vocal and instrumental word-painting that recall the Handel of Acis and Galatea.”
“The performance is fully worthy of this fine music – the excellent singers and players are all on top form – and the sound has a wonderful crystalline clarity.” Elizabeth Roche, Daily Telegraph 29 April 2000 ” . . .there are moments of very individual poetry, of exalted feeling, of typically graceful, ‘rural’ English melody, and of sturdy, stirring music.” Stanley Sadie, Gramophone May 2000.

“I found Lea-Cox’s spirited direction a constant pleasure; he has an effective understanding of style and chooses his tempi discerningly.
“Following an auspicious start, Boyce introduces us to one delight after another. I was enchanted throughout.” Nicholas Anderson, BBC Music Magazine May 2000

“This recording certainly should give delight into the next century: not only is the music enchanting, the performances are full of subtlety and eloquence as well as enthusiasm and spirit.” Hi-Fi News September 1998“The playing of The Hanover Band is admirably crisp.” BBC Music Magazine August 1998“The Hanover Band are consistently crisp and elegant.” Classic CD July 1998“To anyone who relishes the particular flavour of English music of the mid-eighteenth century, this record is not one to be missed … I shall be playing it repeatedly.” Gramophone June 1998 “This recording certainly should give delight well into the next century: not only is the music enchanting, the performances are full of subtlety and eloquence as well as enthusiasm and spirit.” HI-FI News September 1998 “But the highest praise for this recording is due to the players of The Hanover Band and to the conductor Graham Lea-Cox. Together they capture exactly Boyce’s combination of sturdiness and elegance.” BBC Radio 3 Record Review 6 June 1998

The Hanover Band

HANOVER (Not Hannover; Germany) In terms of British history the majority of the music we play is from the Hanoverian period. Hanover also refers to Hanover Square in London, where Haydn performed his symphonies & arias in the Salomon Concerts in the 1790’s.

BAND (ref: The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians)
‘An instrumental ensemble, larger than a chamber ensemble. Thus the ’24 violins’ of Louis XIV were called ‘la grande bande’ to distinguish them from Lully’s ‘petits violons’, and Charles II’s similar ensemble was known as ‘the King’s Band’. By extension, ‘band’ came to mean an orchestra in colloquial British usage’.

THE HANOVER BAND a period name for a period orchestra.
