Gramophone Magazine
Santiago de Murcia (1682-1732) was the last, and possibly greatest, Spanish exponent of the five-course Baroque guitar, his music achieving a perfect balance between the strummed and plucked styles that were prevalent at the time. Throughout, Carter somehow conjures up the sights and sounds of a bygone age with the mastery of a real dramatist, counterbalancing flurries of overlapped scales, energetic strumming and virtuoso trills with the richness and warmth of the more reflective passagesàQuite simply it contains some of the finest Baroque guitar playing you'll ever hear

bbc.co.uk - Charlotte Gardner
Carter has given us de Murcia's full stylistic and international range on this wonderful CD... De Murcia's music, by turns sultry and playful, is brought to life by Carter's light, dextrous, precise yet relaxed playing. This is real summer listening, conjuring up warmer climes than here.
