Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
Nicki Kennedy and Sally Bruce-Payne sing with an appealing appropriateness of scale... the Band is as deliciously poised and pertinent as ever.

Gramophone Magazine
Bruce-Payne achieves genuinely moving results in the first aria of To Lonely Shades. One might wish that Kennedy's renditions of the original English songs on disc 2 had a touch more ease, but the instrumental playing is intelligently musical throughout. The sound is sweet if a little "churchy". A curio, but one full of Handelian pleasures.
