|“ variety is one thing [this CD] can't be accused of lacking. Harper's Byrd transcriptions for brass form an appropriate, and well-played, backdrop to his own Byrd derived Fantasia III, an efficient piece of work. [Cresswell’s vocal works are] finely performed by Jane Manning in recordings which make admirable use of church resonance” - Arnold Whittall (Gramophone)|
