“This is a captivating exploration of some interesting musical byways typically arranged or devised for clavichord...The intimacy of the instrument lends a certain magic to these songs denied to other forces.”

BBC Music Magazine

Christmas Issue 2013

****

“Dickinson's clavichord compositions and transcriptions reveal the instrument's capacity for sounding bluesy, while Alan Ridout's gentle modernism exploits its darker timbres.”

International Record Review

November 2014

“intriguing and delightful … subtle and entertaining, the enjoyment enhanced by Dickinson’s detailed booklet notes.”
