Review excerpts

The composer of hit children’s song Banana [sic] in Pyjamas (and nephew of Enid), Carey Blyton proves himself an artful composer in this charming, well performed collection of fishy wind quintets [sic]. ★★★
Rebecca Franks, BBC Music Magazine (January 2017)
Before I had even played any of the music, I realised at once that this was a ‘quality item’. The presentation box, the booklet and the explanatory notes all combine to make it a very attractive publication for potential buyers.
Frank Bayford, composer (private correspondence)
The Shoal of Fishes design is terrific – a lovely presentation and certainly “stands out from the crowd”. Many thanks indeed.
Mary Blyton, composer’s widow (private correspondence)
…the booklet is delightfully littered with coloured drawings of various fish […] and has been beautifully designed…
Gary Higginson, MusicWeb International (December 2016)
The performances, it seems to me, could not be bettered.
Gary Higginson, MusicWeb International (December 2016)
…this disc is the exquisitely colourful fruit of a collaboration between the Carey Blyton Trust and Peter Thompson’s Fand Music Press.
Rob Barnett, MusicWeb International (December 2016)
The music speaks of a salubrious and dignified creative imagination. Carey Blyton knew music’s art and craftsman’s measure and wrote nothing ugly or dull or at odds with art or craft.
Rob Barnett, MusicWeb International (December 2016)
…a deluxe production with an attractive ‘picture disc’ label. There is a 16-page full-colour booklet that includes extensive music notes […] It's an alluring production all-round…
Rob Barnett, MusicWeb International (December 2016)
Love your design!
Michael Ponder, Sound Engineer/Producer (private correspondence)
