5.0 out of 5 stars An original and absolutely stunning CD, 18 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely stunning! Love, War and Melancholy indeed. My usual preference is for a full orchestra at every opportunity - the larger the better - but here Anneke Scott and Steven Devine (and Lucy Crowe when she joins them) fill the air with uplifting, virtuosic, effervescent and extraordinary music. For lovers of opera, chamber music, song, symphony - I feel anyone with a passion for great music performed with incredible panache and heart - will love this CD

5.0 out of 5 stars 30 Rock, 1 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
30 Rock is fantastic. I've recently watched all 7 series and it is funny, smart, wry, self-deprecating, gently political, and immensely likeable. Brilliantly written and really well acted throughout.

This is a fabulous series of neglected piano concertos, with releases now stretching back many years, and so many are delightful. The Pierne is particularl fun - melodic and romantic. A musical gem.

Wonderful recordings (as recommended by Radio 3, usually pretty infallible!) and excellent value with the coupling of Liszt and Grieg together. Thoroughly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful stuff!, 18 Jun. 2010
I had forgotten this fabulous book, read to me and by me as a child, until a colleague reminded me of Strewelpeter, and it set me thinking of Cautionary Verses, and I ordered it from Amazon. I've since dipped in to it, read it to my chidren and been reminded how much fun - and good advice - there is inside! Gloroius illustrations too. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful places to stay..., 5 May 2010
Karen Brown's collections of places to stay are fabulous. I've used her guides in the US, Portugal, France and Italy, and every time I have found an unusual, individual but thoroughly charming place to stay, that has made a holiday wonderful. If you like welcoming, homely, beautiful off the beaten track places to stay then go no further than Karen Brown's guides!

5.0 out of 5 stars Favourite hymns indeed!, 5 May 2010
This is a lovely collection, great value, well recorded and addictive - whenever I get to the end of the CD, I instinctively go back to the beginning. I thoroughly recomend it as a mellow and uplifting selection of traditional hymns, simply arranged and beautifully sung
