5 stars Surrounded by pianos, harpsichord, organs, moog and mellotron, Rick it is unfolding an irregular disc with absorbent passages of exciting instrumental development and good tact in melodies, special developed in the precious and variable "Catherine Howard" (which it presents/displays an electrical banjo touched by Dave Cousins, member of the Strawbs), the intense "Anne of Cleves" or the atmospheric and mystical "Jane Seymour" (with an organ interpreted in the Cathedral of St. Giles) and less attractive others, in which lies down in lack a greater melodic audition, greater originality in the changes of tempo, greater pitch wealth and smaller autocomplaciente virtuosity. In spite of it, almost all the pieces contain some exciting and attractive section, with that amalgam of rock, jazz and reminiscencias of classic compositions, in special of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Johann Sebastian Bach.
