Notes & Reviews:

'I was amazed, listening to the rich warmth of Thomas Allen's voice, just how many of these songs I knew... Popular, enduring tunes encapsulating a golden era, honestly performed by one of the great baritones of our age' (Classic FM Magazine)

'A persuasive case for the often sublime artistry of the humble parlour song... I found no trouble at all in listening to in continuously from start to finish. That no doubt has also much to do with the great gifts and skills of both artists' (Gramophone)

'done stylishly... by a great singer with a gorgeous voice' (American Record Guide)

'Thomas Allen recalls happy evenings round the family piano and offers this well sung collection, which will strike a lost chord with many' (BBC Music Magazine)

'There is a warm and intimate feeling about Allen's treatment of these songs... Malcolm Martineau's accompaniments are exemplary' (Opera News)

'our focus is on Allen's strong, full-voiced renditions that rarely fail to ingratiate and impress... this is music for everyone' (ClassicsToday.com)

'recording and presentation are first rate... Strongly recommended' (musicweb.uk.net)
