REVIEWS

The recording quality of this CD is excellent, with delightfully subtle reverberation added by the chapel interior… Parle's playing displays a strong sense of personal conviction… This is an interesting CD in which, on the one hand, Parle displays technical prowess and a self-confident approach to interpretative problems, and on the other, we are able to enjoy the sound of this exciting harpsichord [made by Bill Bright].
David Collyer
Australia's Journal of Recorder and Early Music. no 19, 1995


Parle confirms his high reputation with playing of great clarity and consistent impetus. The recording gives welcome prominence to the rich, firm lower-middle and bass registers of the Bright harpsichord.
Roger Covell
Sydney Morning Herald January 1995
