Included in the album is a newly-commissioned work for Septet by Michael Berkeley composed specially for the ensemble, the energetic and characterful 'Clarion Call and Gallop'. Also in the programme is John Casken's 'Blue Medusa' for octet, the stunning but rarely-heard octet by Howard Ferguson and the world premiere recording of Charles Wood's 1889 Septet.

'...rewarding work from another era, merit the proper attention they are given on this imaginitive disc.' The Observer

'...the ensemble gels cohesively, and the well-balanced recording shows the players in their best light.' The Strad

'On this, its debut release, the Berkeley Ensemble (whose members are drawn from the Southbank Sinfonia) gives warmly communicative and commendably polished readings, most truthfully recorded and balanced within an ideally intimate acoustic.' Classical Ear

'This enterprising programme succeeds through the strength of its contrasts.' Gramophone

'...it's very agreeable music, agreeably and skilfully performed by a group which has adopted the name of Lennox and Michael Berkeley and it's all very well recorded. This is the sort of recording that I find ideal for hearing on a quiet Sunday morning or in the late evening.' MusicWeb International

'This is a very enterprising disc with some works which certainly deserve a wider audience.' Robert Hugill
