An Eskimo Lullaby may seem to us more interesting than Camptown Races

Musical Opinion, September 1954

The winners on the disc, I think, are Suo-gân, a splendid Welsh melody … Tryphena Partridge plays the harp accompaniments for the Welsh songs most acceptably…

Records and Recording, April 1964

…old, open-air bonhomie of the Canadian songs…

Records and Recording, April 1964

Of the Welsh songs, I am particularly glad to have the lovely lullaby, Suo-gân … very well accompanied on the harp in the Welsh songs.

The Gramophone, May 1964

…of the three carols I think that The Huron Carol is outstanding, but all three are notable for the effective economy of the accompaniments.

The Gramophone, September 1965

…you should assuredly purchase Onslo’s new LP containing further Canadian folk songs by the Beckenham composer, Carey Blyton. (The first disc … was highly praised by me two years ago.)

The Croydon Advertiser, 31st March 1966

…I hope we shall hear much more of his compositions in “The Gramophone World”.

The Croydon Advertiser, 10th June 1966
