Notes & Reviews:

Featuring guest performances from the likes of Richard Stilgoe, Rory Bremner and Tim Rice, this album should prove a must-buy for cricket- and music-fans alike.

It's an eclectic tribute to the very British obsession that is cricket, bringing together works from the turn of the century (school songs from Harrow and Eton) to the present day ('Jiggery Pokery' from the Ivor Novello nominated album The Duckworth-Lewis Method) as well as from the well-known (Roy Harper's 'When an Old Cricketer Leaves the Crease') to the obscure ('The Summer Game', from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's little-known musical 'Cricket', commissioned for the Queen's 60th Birthday).

Cantabile, also known as 'The London Quartet', have been wowing audiences across the world since the 1980s with their shows that blend performance flair, comic timing and a deep passion for high-quality vocal music.

"Brilliant moments - a droll psalm-chant recitation of the "rules" and an ingenious Pärt-style setting of a pleasingly circular explanation of the game ("Cricket Tea Towel") - show just what these singers can do." -The Independent
