Notes & Reviews:

The Galliard Ensemble, an English wind quintet, performs works by French composers for their ensemble.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
The blend of the three treble instruments in this ensemble is simply remarkable, perhaps most impressive in the softest passages. The group as a whole plays with great cohesion, attentive to the direction of every line, with articulation and phrasing beautifully matched. The intonation is quite good, and the technical virtuosity of the members of the group is top-rate.
