"... alongside Ponsford’s wonderful precise and clear playing, the recording (by Raymond Fenton) is both vivid and full of presence... a valuable new and worthwhile addition to the repertoire of seventeenth-century French organ music; an area of repertoire which this disc and its predecessor has genuinely made immediately accessible to a whole new audience through this splendid playing."

"These two volumes from Nimbus Alliance, NI 6213 and NI 6225 belong very much together, and with excellent recordings and performances I can’t recommend them too highly. The historic organ sound is perhaps an acquired taste if you are used to the more woolly and generous tones of later instruments, but if you really like your Couperin then you know in your heart of hearts that this is where his music really belongs. Once you’ve heard these I suspect you will soon be hooked, and after that there’s no turning back."
