5.0 out of 5 stars ESSENTIAL HISTORY, 16 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been waiting for this to appear for some time as it relates to a couple of projects that I have been involved with. Naval dockyards are an integral part of how the Royal Navy 'works' as an organisation and this gives a clear and comprehensive history of their life and times along with useful information of some of the key characters in their history such as Samuel Bentham. It is not a cheap book but it is well organised and extensively illustrated and if you have any interest in the history of the Royal Navy then this is well worth having on the book shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great acoustic., 6 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have something of a soft spot for requim masses and came across this entirely by accident. My knowledge of classical music is not great but this piece has really gripped me and it never fails to grab my attention every time I listen to it. The wonderfully dynamic of the acoustic of the great volume of St Paul's Cathedral is perfectly suited for what is a large assembly of musicians and chorus and gives the piece a wonderful dignity so appropriate for such a work. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refined playing, 6 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Na Fir Bolg (Audio CD)
This is a delightful album of some of the best Irish concertina playing that I have heard in a long while. It is all at an appropriate pace - no rushing at all - which allows you to enjoy the melodies and the intricacies of the tunes and the playing. The use of a baritone concertina adds an extra dimension especially on the opening track, Joe Bane's and Gypsy Princess - a terrific pair of tunes. I wholeheartedly recommend this album.
