Review quote

A handsome cover with eighteenth-century engraving of Castle Howard encloses 14 minutes worth of well-crafted and distinguished music . . . an appealing clarity of texture prevails in true eighteenth-century fashion. This is a Georgian frame, but lovingly restored, harmonically and melodically, in twentieth-century fashion. Utterly delightful. * Organists' Review *show more
