About this product

A fresh batch of hundreds-of-years-old ballads, paired with instruments only slightly younger! Ali sings some of his sweetest/deepest vocals ever atop David McGuinness' assembled keys: an 1844 grand pianoforte, a "Mozart-style" forte piano, and a century-old Dulcitone. Amble Skuse's electronics keep the 21st-century in the picture, which unfortunately, seems necessary.
