"Beguiling… fascinating… enchanting… their mutual understanding is manifest in every bar, not least the way they listen to each other.”

- Gramophone


“There's something for everyone on the sixty-five-minute recording, and it's all the better for being performed so magnificently.”

- Textura


“Another delightful disc, full of warmth and top-notch playing”

  1. -The Whole Note


"Boyd Meets Girl perform seamlessly in this new release, their communication as artists seemingly flowing from a single consciousness… a very beautiful, very remarkable set of performances… Highly Recommended.”

- Positive Feedback


“As before their repertoire is wide and varied… the result is their second album, Songs of Love and Despair, a worthy follow-up to their eponymous debut...
