The spectrum of UK music since Elgar

This collection spans the entire 20th century, from Elgar's genteel P&C marches, which sound here a little like a pair of elderly garden-club ladies who've accidentally stumbled into a punker rave, to Mark-Anthony Turnage's modish response to Francis Bacon's modish paintings, "Three Screaming Popes." (Good name for a rock group.) James MacMillan's "Britannia" is absolutely hilarious, intentionally so, I hope. Peter Maxwell Davies' "Orkney Wedding, with Sunrise" is great fun, with its wonderful surprise ending which I won't spoil for you. The star of the show is Benjamin Britten's "Sinfonia da Requiem," and specifically the hair-raising "Dies Irae" movement. Highest recommendation.
