"Produced before Bennett’s death, this forms a moving tribute to a masterly composer. The immediately attractive opener, Letters to Lindbergh, quirkily imagines correspondence the aviator might have received from, among others, Pluto (the cartoon dog!) and the Titanic. His gift for soaring, exciting and grateful vocal lines is shown time and time again, and this young Scottish group repay him in spades. Warmly recommended."

"...this is a wonderful repertoire ..."
Keith Bruce - Herald Scotland - March 2013
"...the accompaniments are expertly dispatched, and when four hands are required the word ’virtuoso’ can veritably be employed. The pianists come into their own at the end of the disc, with ’Over the Hills and Far Away, eight short arrangements for piano duet of traditional tunes and nursery rhymes that demonstrate the composer’s skill, delicacy and affection for the material. those words can also be applied to the performances throughout the disc, where you will hear some wonderfully open-throated singing, uninhibited and joyful, with superb diction and tuning, and most sensistive control of dynamics. The disc is well recorded ... a winner."
