Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...He delights in implausible-sounding agility, careening through fast runs in a way that can make it sound as if he is swiping an overlarge set of pan-pipes through his mouth. Adams provides variety by using a range of instruments (sopranino, descant, treble and the one known as voice flute), and the continuo rings the changes between harpsichord and organ, too. Invigorating." - The Irish Times, (March 23, 2012) "...He delights in implausible-sounding agility, careening through fast runs in a way that can make it sound as if he is swiping an overlarge set of pan-pipes through his mouth.
