The first review arrived from a radio presenter even before the official release date!

"This CD arrived here this morning and as I type it is playing here in the office. I can only use one word to sum up the music. Superb. nothing more and nothing less. Some tracks are funny and some have already left me in tears. My secretary has not done much work this morning. There is a thought provoking track about Christmas in the first world war. The style is very Eric Bogle and the words make one realise the futility of war. Other tacks are just right for playing on stations/programmes other than folk. I will be playing some tracks on Purrfect FM this weekend. I am also looking forward conducting an interview with Artisan on Wednesday 9th December. In short I can recommend this CD."

And from our mailbox....

All of us here (and we have 2 CD copies between us) think that your Paper Angels album is terrific. It has been with us at home and in the car all over the holidays. It's so peaceful and poignant, yet very amusing, it's a masterpiece! Thanks again and all the best for the coming year!
Jan Moncrieff.

I love "Christmas Eve 1914". The perfect antidote to Snoopy's Xmas! And "Gently, softly" I reckon should be in the next Oxford book of carols - it's brilliant.
