Reviews

'This is a superb collection… This will be one of my favorite sets of 1995' (Fanfare, USA)

'Delivered faultlessly. The Plough Boy whistles jauntily, the bluebells ring in The Ash Grove, the Miller of Dee sings at his workplace. Exquisite' (The Leeds Guide)

'Interprètes exceptionelles' (Répertoire, France)

'El sonido es magnifico, y la recomendabilidad absolute por la belleza de la musica y el alto nivel de las versiones' (Scherzo, Spain)
