Two musical knights (Wood & Harty)

From two old LP's:-

Firstly, Sir Henry Wood. An LP on the Pearl label, "Promenade Favourites". Never transferred to CD, as far I know. This includes two choruses from "Messiah" recorded live at Crystal Palace in 1926 (around 4,000 performers!).

Secondly, Sir Hamilton Harty in Berlioz, an old World Record Club release. Some of these have been released by Pristine Classical recently, but I haven't heard those. The transfers here are by A. C. Griffith.
