Some of this may be considered "light" music, particularly the Coates piece which closes the concert, but this is all just delicious in composition and performance.
This version of the "English Folk Song Suite" is the best. Likewise the Greensleeves Fantasia. v Just superb.

I bought the LP thirty or so years ago, lost it, and finally tracked down its info. I bought a lovely, clean copy on Discogs, and here we are.
Hope you enjoy.
See you on Monday!
