Brigg Fair/Marche Caprice are noisy shellac. Minimally edited those; & trying De-Click killed the clarity (Surprise!)...

  1. Wonderful! Nice to hear Betty Humby- Beecham, and of course Delius - Beecham is a very happy combination! Thanks!

    1. Her performance is rather better than I recalled hearing (BBC Radio 3, sometime in the '70's - there was a early '60's HMV transfer): but still prefer Moiseiwitsch's 1946.
