Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:

“This is a delightful idea for a recording... The non-musical items in the programme are done splendidly by the soprano Margarette Ashton... The performers are excellent. With original instruments joining a soprano voice that is small but admirably suited to the repertoire... The well-recorded programme really does create images of the scene that we are intended to imagine. A recommendation then for an imaginative and enterprising CD.” – Classical Music on the Web
