Notes & Reviews:

This recording is entirely devoted to English music. A reason for that is my interest in the culture and musical world of that country and what concerns its literature, poetry and visual arts. Music in England has always, from its very early period, had a specific and definite character.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
Despite my reservations about the Whettam, this is beautifully played and imaginatively programmed. I look forward to more from this artist.
