        Imaginative, effective and very playable. This Suite is one of the few things of its kind on the market that's really worth playing. Players of secure grade 3 standard will enjoy working at this; traditional tunes (Raggle-Taggle Gypsies, O Waly Waly & Blow away the Morning Dew) are given a fresh, beautiful treatment by a fine composer who refuses to write boringly.
