Notes and Editorial Reviews

"For anyone who finds the sound of a solo lute for a long stretch too ascetic, this is an ideal disc. John Williams has so full a tone that it almost sounds like a harpsichord, playing with warmth and insight." -- BBC Music Magazine "For anyone who finds the sound of a solo lute for a long stretch too ascetic, this is an ideal disc.
