Notes & Reviews:

Under the hand of Peter Breiner, however unlikely their disguise, these Beatles favorites, shorn of their words and strangely enhanced by their Baroque setting, retain the simplistic modal clarity of McCartney's originals. Re-arranged in their classical guise they are mad to sound even more nostalgic, almost improved by some time-honored process of alchemy. These favorite anthems of the 1960s in this fresh and unique setting still have the power to transport us "over the hills and far away".

"It says something about the quality of John Lennon and Paul McCartney's songs that they continue to inspire discs like this one. My collection contains CDs of songs by the Beatles done Brazilian-style and in the style of Gregorian chants, as well as several "Baroque Beatles" projects realized by John Bayless, Les Boreades de Montreal, and others... This CD is thoroughly enjoyable, and will play mind games with unsuspecting fans of both the Beatles and Baroque music." -Fanfare
