Notes & Reviews:

"Baxians everywhere will rejoice at the appearance of this beautiful and enterprising collection, which fills so many gaps in the composer's current discography...No praise can be too great for the palpable dedication and sensitivity of these performances, which have been accorded Chandos sound of wonderful transparency and warmth. In every way, delightful release." -Gramophone
