Notes & Reviews:

"Graham Johnson is his usual prefessional self at every turn. Like Philip Greenfield, I find Christopher Maltman to be the best thing on the recording. He's firmly in control of his voice, never sounding forced or pressured, always relaxed and at ease. Catherine Wyn-Rogers is nicely three-dimensional, possessed of a round, smooth voice. Hats off to Naxos for making this delightful recording available again." - Boyer, ARG
