Vernon Handley: Reviews on MusicWeb International


The conductor Vernon Handley, who died on 10 September 2008, was a prolific recording artist. There are unlikely to be many, if any, conductors whose work has been more extensively reviewed on the site. Below are links to all the reviews and articles found by a Google search of the site on the day after he died. It is possible that this is not absolutely complete so please let us know if you come across anything else or spot any errors. This is not a discography (any volunteers to compile one?) but it probably does represent his recorded output quite well. So it's farewell to "Tod" but what a legacy!
