Notes & Reviews:

"The songs are excellently well chosen; Langridge is particularly attracted to those numbers that accentuate witty turns of phrase, such as Daniel Purcell's "Cupid Make Your Virgins Tender." Patter abounds in Eccles' "Belinda," which contains the immortal lines "her prattle prattle tittle tattles, all engaging, most obliging." Langridge's singing is quite good throughout, though he sounds a bit more effective emotionally in lower lying songs. He has chosen an ensemble from among his own family; his daughter plays the cello parts, and Tristan Gurney plays a 1780 Gagliano that Langridge owns; Malcolm Layfield joins in on a second Gagliano that uncannily matches the sound of the first. David Owen Norris contributes accompaniment on a fortepiano on some songs to vary the backing, and at one point you could swear a harpsichord is in use, though if so it is not listed. The best stuff here are the two works of Thomas Arne, his song "Jenny" and short solo cantata "Cymon and Iphigenia;"" -All Music
