Reviews

'Ayres for the Theatre is a wonderful collection of rich and varied, tuneful music and has been marvellously well recorded by engineer Tony Faulkner … the players set out in almost holographic detail between, beyond, between and in front of the loudspeakers. You could almost be there' (Gramophone)
