Comments:Susan Proud said:

Early Music Review 18 March 1996 (Brian Clark) "Malcolm Proud has the extraordinary gift of sounding like two players sitting side by side at the keyboard, the articulation of the bass line is so distinctive. Maya Homburger's sense of line is absolutely unerring and her controlled use of vibrato particularly impressive. ........I thoroughly enjoyed the entire set (yes, at one sitting!) and would recommend this to anyone, wheter or not they have a different set already."
