Writes John Collins:
This recording provides a fascinating and rewarding window into a broad range of English pieces, and is highly recommended.

Writes Alan Howard:
This is a greatly enjoyable disc, and the juxtaposition of earlier and later works is particularly to be welcomed as a demonstration of the continued vibrancy of English harpsichord music in the late 17th century.

Writes Lindsay Kemp:
The success of Booth’s performances also stems from tempi which take time to enjoy not just the harpsichord’s tone but the richness and lyricism that is there in the music.
