Stone Records would like to recommend this new wireless music system. We've had a play with prototypes and talked to the CEO, and this is going to be a really exciting product. You will be able to combine it with a simple home automation system, but more than that, just as a stand-alone sound system it already solves the problems that exist with Sonos. Support it now on Kickstarter to be the first to own it and to get it for a great price.

Reviews
 

Mark Stone, the excellent baritone who has planned and sings this comprehensive recital so impressively, is obviously thoroughly at home in this repertoire and I wish I had more space to describe Orr’s fascinatingly diverse accompaniments, which Simon Lepper plays so imaginatively. I recommend these two discs strongly to all lovers of English song and even more to singers, for they will surely find items suitable for expanding their own repertoire. (Gramophone)

More songs by Orr exit, I should say, on this CD than on previous issues put together. They are well promoted by Stone and Lepper in a recording by Richard Sutcliffe in Potton Hall which could not be bettered. (International Record Review)

**** The important thing is that these songs are now available in committed performances. (The Guardian)

Mark Stone has done a real service in unearthing these, and recording them at such a high level. Stone Records is his own label (more and more artists are turning to this approach), and he provides thorough, well-written, and informative notes and complete texts. (Fanfare)
