Notes & Reviews:

This is the fourth solo recording by flautist Alison Melville, for which this member of the Toronto Consort, Ensemble Polaris and Tafelmusik has conveyed some of her favourite music partners to join her. The enthusiasm she invested in her research paid-off: She discovered that for well over a century, the demand for Scottish instrumental and vocal music fuelled tremendous publishing activity in Scotland. From the gigantic repertoire she discovered for her instruments, Alison recorded 25 chosen pieces, including the contagious Greensleeves, that she revisits with tremendous freshness, in an original arrangement created by her fellow musicians.
