George Macfarren was considered by many of his contemporaries as the greatest British dramatic opera composer since Purcell. Described by Edward J Dent as 'very full of good fun and on the way to Sullivan', Robin Hood is Macfarren's masterpiece, one of an impressive roster of now neglected mid-nineteenthcentury British operas, notable for its fine ensemble scenes, witty motifs, and deft, imaginative orchestration. Victorian Opera's recording of Wallace's Lurline (8.660293-94) was widely admired: 'the opera and the performance are both a delight.' (American Record Guide)
