8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Reginald D. Garrard VINE VOICE on November 19, 2005
This album was released eight years into the tenure of John Williams as lead conductor of The Boston Pops Orchestra and it is a testament to the musician's desire to present past classical works along with those of contemporary composers. "Pops Britannia" is a fitting hodgepodge of melodies that hail from the whole of Britain.

Works are presented that were composed by the following:

"Orb and Sceptre" - Sir William Walton 6:50

"Brigg Fair" - Frederick Delius 15:47

"Irish Tune form County Derry (Danny Boy)" 3:45
arranged by Percy Aldridge Grainger, who also contributed

"Molly on the Shore" 4:22

"Fantasia on Greensleeves" - Ralph Vaughan Williams 4:35

"An Orkney Wedding, with Sunrise" - Sir Peter Maxwell Davies 14:00

The traditional "Scotland the Brave" 2:00

The singular highlight is William's own excerpts from the 1971 television of "Jane Eyre". This three-part composition is one of the composer's finest pieces and deserves to be recognized as such.

"Jane Eyre"
1) At Lowood 4:16
2) To Thornfield 3:02
3) The Return 6:06
