"... this is a recording that will delight lovers of Handel, and this CD should be purchased by anyone wanting an overview of Handel’s keyboard music."
Douglas Hollick - The Consort (The Journal of the Dolmetsch Foundation, Vol 70) - Summer 2014
“... A fine instrument, with silvery, bell-like timbres in the upper register and a richly sonorous bass. Rowland’s changes of registration for repeats are judicious and tasteful, revealing fully the beauties of his instrument. A highly satisfying version of Handel’s Suites… as the final notes die away, one is simply left with a strong temptation to shout “Bravo!”.
Brian Robins - Harpsichord & Fortepiano
"... The playing is exciting and eloquent throughout, and Rowland thoroighly understands the subtle effectiveness of Handel’s panache..."
Robert Anderson - Daily Classical Music
“The sound is robust and powerful, and Rowland uses every inch of the keyboards, generally with bright and decisive attack.The articulation and ornamentation in particular are precise and clear. I found much to admire in the robust performances and sometimes sensitive interpretations. In short this is a worthy sequel.”
Bertil van Boer - Fanfare
“ It is impossible to praise this new release too highly. Fabulous playing.The combination of Handel, Gilbert Rowland, Wooderson’s fine harpsichord, the recording venue at Holy Trinity Church, Weston, Hertfordshire and the recording engineer John Taylor is unbeatable providing, as it does, a collection of these wonderful suites that I will return to again and again.”
