"This a wonderful disc. Delightful songs. Kirkby's clear, pure voice complemented by Rooley's sympathetic lute accompaniment"
(MusicWeb Dec 2005)

Together with her husband Anthony Rooley, Emma Kirkby brings her purity of sound and intimacy of interpretation to a quiet and reflective program of Elizabethan songs. A much-praised recording in its day, with informative notes by Emma Kirkby herself, it is as fresh as it was when recorded nearly 30 years ago and is happily restored to the catalogue at budget price.
