Reviews

'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 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.

from notes by Paul Spicer 1993
