Reviews

‘Affecting treatment of the intimate lute songs of the Elizabethans’ Fanfare

‘This a wonderful disc … Kirkby conveys a wonderful sweetness. Her intonation is absolutely spot-on, her enunciation is perfect … The songs are all delightful, and Kirkby captures the nuances of the texts brilliantly. Highly recommended’ MusicWeb
