This was almost certainly the first CD anywhere totally devoted to original works for three or four cellos, all wonderful music which has been shamefully neglected. Cello Spice is a group of Scotland's finest cellists, namely Alison Lawrance, Gillian Copp, John Davidson and Mark Bailey. This remains the only recording available of most of these superb works

"A wonderful disc" - BBC Radio North Network
"If you like cellos, Cello Spice is for you...... Buy it!" - Musical Opinion
"I fell on..(this disc)...with glee...I played A Celebration of cellos over and over and over" - Andre Jute Classical Jukebox
"this simply demands to be heard and enjoyed, in the same deep glow of warm contentment as comes from a glass of Laphroaig taken in a leather chair in front of a roaring log fire on a winter evening… the repertoire has been skilfully chosen to show off the sheer richness of the sound of a cello quartet, and this listener has played the disc again and again with enchantment growing apace on each occasion.   All in all, a most endearing disc".   - Martin Anderson - Fanfare (USA)
