Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...The orchestra understands every nuance of the music, maintaining a sense of levity and characteristically English serenity and grace throughout the album. It is a match made in heaven between the musicians and the repertoire, and this is indeed very lucky for the listener." - AllMusic Guide "...The orchestra understands every nuance of the music, maintaining a sense of levity and characteristically English serenity and grace throughout the album.
