Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
Supported with exceptional clarity by Jakob Lindberg, Kirkby conveys both intellectual appreciation and a deep emotional connection with the words in this recital...[her] 'Bess of Bedlam' is more sympathetic than most, and her 'Music for a While' is more enigmatic. The voice may be less beautiful than it was, but her singing is more beautiful than ever.

Gramophone Magazine
Few singers are quite a compelling with only a lute for company: Kirkby's phrasing has impeccable light and shade, and her authoritative articulation of melancholic sentiments is simply first-class...her gripping interpretation [of In darkness let me dwell] is devoid of complacence; moreover, her intonation and technique in florid music has lost none of its sparkle and precision.

International Record Review
Kirkby embellishes with taste and discretion...Both [she] and Lindberg are especially good here in the last Dowland item, 'In darkness let me dwell'...the tempo well judged, the lute part a translucent garment draped over Kirkby's highly expressive delivery.
