A lovely performance of C. Hubert H. Parry's *Blest Pair of Sirens* is  
included on the EMI Classics CD *Parry: Symphony No. 5*, part of the  
label's British Composers series. The track was recorded (in Abbey  
Road Studio No. 1, no less) in December 1966, with the London  
Philharmonic Orchestra and the London Philharmonic Choir; Sir Adrian  
Boult, perhaps Parry's most insightful interpreter (and defender),  
conducts.  Enjoy!
