"Immaculately recorded. Relaxing but with plenty of depth."
"Full of quiet beauty this is the sound of a master craftsman at work."
"This is delightfully subtle music with its roots in folk forms, relaxing but never bland, and played with an extraordinary amount of dedication and skill. "
"All of the Stoysin hallmarks are here, gorgeous folk inspired melodies, skilful but unhurried playing, a pristine recorded sound and an obvious love of both humanity and nature."
