“Every piece is superbly performed… a rich and natural recording. Each work is fine indeed… and in the case of the first piece “Night Music” the word “outstanding” comes to mind. A splendid disc." – Gary Higginson (MusicWeb)

I have been mightily impressed by this new release… I sincerely hope this CD will receive the broadcast attention it deserves… with graham Whettam’s 80th birthday in 2007 he is by all accounts long overdue for some extra recognition.” – Dominy Clements (MusicWeb)
