Reviews

‘[the songs are] launched and sustained with arresting expressiveness. … The whole gamut of moods in the Welsh songs is found to be more artfully arranged when one has played it through several times. I found many of the songs, unfamiliar at first, growing on me as I repeated them. … I found the recording easy and realistic … and enjoyable.’ Gramophone
