5 stars Top notch composing from Latimer and Bardens. A completely instrumental album based on the Novella by Paul Gallico. A fervent anti-smoker the author refused to sanction the group's project because of their name. The album had to be called Music Inspired by the Snow Goose instead.

The music flows effortlessly from one song to the next and is best listened to as a whole. Wind instruments such as flute and clarinet are used most effectively to produce different textures and emotions. They also came up with a killer melody to represent The Snow Goose. This is hauntingly effective. The melody is reprised towards the end of the piece as La Princess Perdue but with more epic orchestration. This album is simply superb.
