Notes & Reviews:

"Thomas Allen [is] unafraid to open his heart, mind and wonderful voice to these striking lyrics and memorable tunes of the home-entertainment era. The direct, unfussy delivery, the obvious affection and heart warming ease which he brings to all 29 ballads in this second selection are the marks of a truly great artist. You may find some of them unexpectedly moving." ***** - Jeremy Nicholas, BBC

'With piano-playing by that most sensitive of accompanists, Malcolm Martineau, Sir Thomas Allen brings high art to these songs... with an affectionate regard to mood and feeling, and with a touching lyrical sincerity' (The Daily Telegraph)

'Other singers over recent decades have given the songs an airing from time to time, but Thomas Allen is the very man to do it' (Gramophone)

'A fitting tribute to this repertory that one of the finest operatic voices of our day has chosen to record it' (Classic FM Magazine)

'Hyperion here brings us Sir Thomas Allen caressing 29 well-loved parlour songs with his warm, expressive baritone... Malcolm Martineau provides his usual sympathetic and well-etched pianistic support' (Birmingham Post)

'I must confess that, what with the beauty of Thomas Allen's voice and the lovely accompaniment of Malcolm Martineau at the piano, a tear welled in my eye more than once. Another distinguished release from Hyperion' (Liverpool Daily Post)

'what quality of nostalgia, and what depth of conviction... Superb performances... Martineau's carefully moulded accompaniments enhance a glorious enterprise' (Yorkshire Post)
