Here are some of the comments received following the release.

"I have been listening to your cd and I love it. It is simply beautiful. The songs, the tunes and the way you have put them together, this is my sort of music. I could listen to it on repeat over and over."

"Great running order and every track has captured you all in full flow. The artwork is great."

"I love how you weave the layers together."

"It's absoloutely beautiful and I love the first track; Lavender's Blue."

"I must admit, I spent the first 10 minutes looking at the artwork. Great instrumental work, superb vocals and well put together. It's a different interpretation of folk songs. It's very well recorded, produced and mastered with good balance. The best compliment I can make is that I don't skip any of the tracks whilst playing it in the car. Excellent"
