'Delightfully sung by Bott and Cornwell to a joyful accompaniment' (Gramophone)

'Stylish interpretations … elegantly shaped wind playing by The Parley of Instruments … the disc provides valuable insight into early 18th century music and national identity.' (BBC Music Magazine)

'A winning disc' (The Independent)

The performances share the brio and stylishness we associate with Holman’s Parley of Instruments team … this is a delightful mélange of Georgian Britishness in its different moods.' (International Record Review)

'The Parley are on delightfully relaxed form, Holman’s direction unfailingly strikes the right note, and the singing exudes encore freshness. A winning collection all round' (Classic CD)

'A smashing disc' (Classic FM Magazine)

'This is one of those rare collections in which every one of its 16 pieces is a gem' (Fanfare, USA)
