I bought this book the day it was published. I have had difficulty in putting it down. The story of Ravel's life is riveting. Nichols writes with authority. He makes Ravel's life story incisive, understandable and above all entertaining.

However, for me, as a non-musician, it was very pleasing that Roger Nichols doesn't make it too 'musically challenging' as I don't read music. It is an amazing event for an Englishman to be awarded Le Legion d'Honeur for his work on one of France's most revered composers.

There is no doubt in my mind, that Roger Nichols is now regarded as the world's leading authority of Maurice Ravel. What an achievement!

Having heard this lady on BBC Radio Hereford and Worcester this week, I immediately bought her first CD, 'Calling Me Home' and now finding her latest albumn,'Christmas by Candlelight' was again truly impressed. Linda Tolchard is obviously going places - could she be the next Katherine Jenkins?
