The music on this CD is largely unfamiliar and previously unrecorded. It was written by a group of distinguished turn-of-the-century Scottish musicians who were in their time well-respected academics, but modest to a fault about their own creative talents.

The piano miniatures presented here communicate with a directness, strength and mastery of technique which is often highly tuneful, rhythmically infectious and poetically moving.

In short, here is a collection of delightful piano 'lollipops' which have been shockingly neglected; a substantial corpus of well-crafted music for all to enjoy and admire.
