Victorian Love Songs, a 14-track collection of expertly recorded (as in modern) 19th century instrumentals, retains its rich historical patina by utilizing the dulcet sound of hammered dulcimer, acoustic guitar, flute, violin, bass, and harp, resulting in a quiet breeze of a record that neither boasts nor bleats. Highlights include "Daisy Bell (Bicycle Built for Two)/Sweet Rosie O'Grady," "Come All Ye Fair and Tender Ladies," and "Silver Threads Among the Gold." ~ James Christopher Monger
