'Revelatory' (Gramophone)

'A delightful release … polished, impeccable performances. Very enjoyable' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Superb' (American Record Guide)

'Barritt and Edwards pour their hearts into this music which rewards them—and us—equally and in kind. A significant gap in the English chamber repertoire has been filled by this lovely release' (Fanfare, USA)

'Urgent exploration recommended' (CDReview)

Cradle song, Op 9 No 1

Cradle Song is rather extensive and shares something of the plaintive quality of ‘Luchinushka’. It has the character of a bedtime story told in that half-hushed tone by a reader who wants to magic a child to sleep on a wing of coloured dreams.
