Notes & Reviews:

"Bryden Thomson draws out all the romance and passion of these complex, colourful scores... You can sense the sultry, perilous enchantment of the midsummer forest in Nympholet; the music, Debussy-like, capturing all the languor and enticement of the unobtainable... This is music to make your imagination run riot. Sumptuous sound..." - BBC
