Review

'Eclogue is a particularly welcomed discovery, and the considerable enterprise of Cameo Classics should be loudly applauded.' Michael Round, International Record Review, May 2014

"I would be hard pressed to claim any of the works included here as unknown masterworks but almost all are interesting and enjoyable to hear, and suggest that further exploration of their composers’ output would be worthwhile. This is a fascinating disc, made more so by the helpful booklet notes and the admirable soloists. For anyone interested in the byways of British (or Australian) music this disc is a real treasure which offers a valuable introduction to some unfortunately neglected composers." John Sheppard, musicweb-international.com

"This collection is, like the first volume in the series, a CD which has claims on the attention of listeners over and above the audience who appreciate British music of the early twentieth century. The two works by Blower are both valuable additions to the catalogue, and it is good to welcome back the Milford as well." Paul Corfield Godfrey, MusicWeb-International.com

"I am truly enthralled by the music and playing on this disc with Robin Milford's Suite in D minor. This disc is a joy and a real achievement.  It is also a wonderful contribution to British music." Peter Hunter - Milford Trust

"The Malta Philharmonic Orchestra make an elite sound. Their strings are clean with a caramel and tobacco tone." Rob Barnett, MusicWeb Intenational
