This quite exquisite series of works falls more into the classically classical, if you see what I mean, and whilst the beautiful, delicate and occasionally robust pieces are sometimes punctuated by more overtly experimental moments, the main theme here is of simple, effective clarity and feeling. If you have any love for the sound of the acoustic guitar I strongly recommend you investigate this glorious album immediately. Very beautiful indeed. ”
