We would, If we Brits could – cuddle up to a hot cup of Bovril and the warming strains of Eric Coates: By a Sleepy Lagoon, the London Suite and much more, vigorously conducted by the composer himself, amongst others, and now superbly transferred to CD by Conifer. Comforting stuff in anticipation of a time when all Europeans might tread common musical ground.
