Thank you so much for your awesome site! These CDs are excellent. Aly Bain and Jay Ungar playing Ashokan's Farewell is one of the best things I've heard for a while! Thanks for sharing it with us CK, we're in your debt!

Brilliant brilliant brilliant.

One of the best music series on BBC TV in the last 10 years.

Would be brilliant if they make some more programmes.

Many thanks for sharing.

Cheers,

Douglas (UK)
