Completing this portrait is Capriccio for orchestra, based on the hymn tune ‘Abide with me’ and wind quintet In Xanadu.

'This refreshing recording [...] brims with vitality and clear, sinuous melody. [...] but it’s in his new Soliloquies for trumpet and strings, superbly played here by Christopher Hart, that Fribbins’s gift for long, searching and euphonious melody is most on display.'
