Notes & Reviews:

Adrian Chandler and his dazzling period-instrument band deliver their eighth imaginative album for Avie, further securing their exalted place in the realms of early music performance.

BBC Music Magazine
Whelan with Pamela Thorby provide an evenly balanced partnership with plenty of tasteful ornaments.

Gramophone Magazine
Thorby shows off her supreme nimbleness and elfin charm; this is music that has sounded coldly mechanical in other hands, yet Thorby's personality and piper's box of subtle ornamental tricks give it a vocal vitality...With La Serenissima offering their usual bright but lightly cushioned sound, this is another disc of no-nonsense joy in the Vivaldian world.

International Record Review
Chandler yields nothing to his Italian rivals in terms of technique and flair...In matters of performance practice, [he] is willing to go back to the sources and try out seemingly strange things...these are must-have performances for all of Red Priests's musical parishioners.

Sunday Times
This is a Vivaldi recital of wonderful contrasts, played with fizzing energy, crisply articulated, vividly coloured and passionate.

The Independent
The most notable pieces are those featuring woodwind as lead instrument...it's Pamela Thorby's lead role in the Concerto for Sopranino Recorder, Strings & Continuo that dazzles, a virtuoso performance.
