Rather stodgy and ponderous.

The recording mic was too close. More ambience needed The one out of tune pedal stop was most distracting.

This fails to impress because the domestic, though palatial, setting lacks the reverberations needed

"It's..." Played at a suitably rip-roaring pace. Good fun.

Good balance between stops, especially the Great Diapason chorus and the pedal.

No need to be that harsh. It's a typical Coates-like march. I wish pieces like these were played more often if only to cleanse the palate from the dire and serious pieces that permeate sometimes. Lighten up!
