Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
The title, "alphabet songs" refers to a system of notation that assigns letters to guitar chords, with extra symbols for barre chords, sevenths, and suspensions. I say "trained" because this group has lived with this music for a long time, and their choices are tasteful, stylish, and convincing. The music is charming and delightful. Most are solos, performed by Ms Andueza with a pure and expressive voice, perfect for this music. She is joined in a few duets with Ms Dlouhy, with a beautifully matched tone. Flamino Corradi's 'Odi Euterpe' reminds me of Barbara Strozzi. It's quite irresistible.
