By Frederick J. Spector on March 5, 2013
Format: MP3 Music Verified Purchase
If your a musical Anglophile then this thematic collection covers a lot of ground.

Most of the excerpts are in the 2 to 3 minute range but there are longer movements,as well.

It follows vocal and instrumental music from many areas and periods, tied together by regional names.

It's a fun and at times, nostalgic journey. Less journey and longer samples would have added the last star to my rating,

but don't let that stop you from enjoying the trip.
