‘No connoisseur of recorder-playing or Renaissance instrumental virtuosity will want to be without this delightful anthology.' The Telegraph

5 stars 'Thorby's playing exhibits a vitality, exuberance and earthiness...' BBC Music Magazine

‘This is Paradise indeed.' Gramophone

Garden of Early Delights is a mixed bouquet of diverse, joyous, unusual and eloquent pieces from the Renaissance and aarly Baroque periods. Performed by Pamela Thorby on recorders and Andrew Lawrence-King on harps and psaltery, these are two virtuosic musicians unsurpassed in their respective fields. The garden of sixteenth and seventeenth-century music brought forth a rich harvest of symbolism and literary associations  some of which are presented on this album. The programme includes bursts of good humour in the treatment of van Eyck's popular variations, sensuous melancholy from Dowland contrasting with the formality of diminutions on favourite madrigals. Garden of Early Delights includes solo pieces from both musicians, plus works that allow them to come together and showcase their considerable skills for musical interaction. Pamela Thorby and Andrew Lawrence-King merge their considerable experience of other genres to deliver a unique performance on an album that brings to life music full of surprise, beauty and delight.
