Enigma Variations - Polyphonic Recordings

Over the years I have acquired various versions of a series recorded by Fodens and Desford on Polyphonic. There appears to be confusion on which of the two bands actually recorded Enigma Variations. I have one version (EHS 001D) that identifies Desford for Var.1 - XIII with Var. XIV being combined Fodens & Desford and another version (QMPR 605D) that identifies Fodens for Var. 1 - XIII with the combined bands on Var. XIV. Does anyone have any information on which band actually featured in the recording of Var. 1 - XIII?
