‘La Magdalena’ ….A decent publication whose contents are both historically important and great fun to play… - Paul Fowles - Classical Guitar Magazine March 2000.
‘London-25’ …an attractive Berceuse…my particular favourite; a lyrical Irish sounding Lovesong and the baroque-inspired title piece, which sounds as if it is going to launch into a Gasper Sanz dance…there are some very nice pieces in this book… Steve Marsh – Classical Guitar Magazine March 2000.
