From the Phoenix website:
"Wind and Sea is a magical new release pairing the sonority of early music and samba rhythms into something sensitive, gentle, and totally unconventional...The combination of Brazilian folk song, Portuguese pitter-patter, boat calls, and lyric declamations, with shakers and conga drums of all description, alongside Baroque viols and lutes, creates subtle shades and expressive colors defying classification, like Wind and Sea itself. It is an ethnic-classical music synthesis unique to our time". Harry Rubinstein, The Jerusalem Post, Israel
" Highly imaginative ... the four Bachianas Brasileiras sound terrific with viols and they're very well played". Robert Oliver, Early Music Review, UK
