What a lovely disc this is. I'd never encountered the music of Ina Boyle beyond the short character piece "Wildgeese" which made about as deep an impression on me as is possible in less than 4 minutes, while painting a picture of geese in flight. I live in an area where geese have become so plentiful that they are something of a nuisance, but they are majestic in flight and I loved that piece on first hearing. The disc at hand makes it possible to inhabit that same musical world in absolute forms for extended stretches and I sat in something like a state of rapture for 84 minutes only to immediately play the disc again. To be sure the music won't appeal to everyone. There are no sharp edges, no startling effects, no clashing dissonance. Think of Boyle's friend and mentor RVW touched by the landscape of Ireland and you'll be somewhat close. A big thank you to Michael Dutton, Ronald Corp, and the band.

Hi Bill, have you seen this one? Cello Abbey - Rochat / Meyer. And Nadege is a wonderful cellist. At least that's what I think.

Thanks for the reminder, Adrian. After waiting for ages for a hi res multichannel Elgar several came along at more or less the same time and this is the one that got left out. No more, I just ordered it!
