Recorded at the Music Room, Hatchlands, Surrey, 18-19 November 2009

"David Owen Norris breathes new life into recently discovered manuscripts"

"... a delightful collection of music drawn from 17 music albums that belonged to Jane Austen and other ladies of the family."

"The piano used is a Broadwood instrument of 1817, signed by composer J.B.Cramer. If these two names ring a bell it is because you have come across them in 'Emma', published just two years earlier."

"David Owen Norris projects a wide spectrum of emotion on the instrument ... both fresh and redolent of the bygone age."

"The soprano, Amanda Pitt, delivers her items with sincerity and warmth, as well as a wide-ranging variety of sentiment."

"This is an enjoyable programme, suitable for a wider audience beyond the specialist."

The Regency World of Jane Austen magazine, September 2011

This collection will no doubt be required listening for dedicated Jane Austen fans.
