Notes & Reviews:

For this new disc David Bowerman secured the services of Thomas Carrol (cello), Daniel Pailthorpe (flute), Emily Pailthorpe (oboe), Julian Milford (piano), Sophie Bevan (soprano) and the Sacconi Quartet, all of whom have previously recorded for the label.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Thomas Carroll is cellist, Julian Milford pianist in Bedham Woods, a 17-minute cello sonata named for the cottage where Elgar once lived. Flutist Daniel Pailthorpe and oboist Emily Pailthorpe join pianist Milford in the lively contrapuntal interplay of 'Autumn', a five-minute fantasy. Sophie Bevan is the soprano soloist, along with oboist Pailthorpe and pianist Milford, in a 21-minute group of seven Psalms of Ascent. The Sacconi Quartet is heard gamboling through 'La Grenouille', a whimsical eight-minute work that reminds me of a child at play - fascinated by something. The album ends with works for choir (of St Patrick's Church) and organ (Stuart Hutchinson). Four Canticles has the imposing sound of something that should be performed in a cavernous cathedral like this one (St Patrick's in Soho Square, London).
