What wonderful sounds we hear ... Great listening. I enjoyed this vividly performed programme very much and wish Dragonsfire well. (Musical Opinion) ... a bright, fresh, lively and forward sound with good balance and a sense of enjoyment. All the arrangements of the pieces are by the Group and this results in a distinctive sound which is most attractive. ... This is a splendid disc, to be enjoyed and savoured many a time. (Words and Music)

And finally something completely different - a Christmas record for people with ears. Dragonsfire are an amazing quartet who... are to be congratulated on putting out a record of such virtuosity and, dare one say, charm. (Musician)
