“This is a delightfully different recording… which contrasts most of the possible combinations with …four hands and the four early keyboard replicas (two organs, on harpsichord and one fortepiano) at their disposal. The two works for harpsichord four-hands are charming in their simplicity and exude as good a recorded harpsichord sound as I have yet heard. All instruments featured show that their builders gave serious consideration to replicating the historic properties of earlier models. All four of the instruments add a dimension of authenticity to these performances of early music. For this mostly armchair music critic, the disc would be just as good for providing a gentle, but stately backdrop while taking afternoon tea with friends.” – The Diapason
“The Concerto for two organs in A minor by Soler is wonderfully entertaining, as only Soler can be.. The duo particularly succeeds with the haunting theme of the andate in the final works (Allegro and Andate K. 608)… this program certainly gives its hour of pleasure.” – Organ Alternatives, Toronto, Canada
“Quentin and Mary Faulkner bring to this disc an immense life and love of the literature that makes it nothing less than an illuminating experience…. This is glistening for listining.”
