"The rich, delicate sound of the harp intertwines with melodies and harmonies of hammered dulcimer, violin, mandolin and flute for a pleasant listening experience that is also steeped in Irish history." The Oregonian, 3/17/00

"The Harper's Reverie treads a more adventurous path than most of the O'Carolan collections, and concentrates on the enjoyment of the music itself than treating it like an academic exercise."
