In the Independent, Andy Gill writes about John's CD: "John Dowland's Lachrimae Pavans - the "Seaven teares", as he called them - grew out of the composer's "Flow my Tears", each pavan exploring further harmonic and contrapuntal possibilities...The recurrent themes...wield a compelling emotional momentum in these performances by John Holloway's ensemble, at once woeful and wonderful".

"Hats off to John Holloway... His experience shows in remarkably distinctive ways. It isn't merely his command and his deep affinity for both his violin and the music. It is his sound: burnished by time, crystal-clear in the centre but faintly soft-edged; free, never forced... an essay in good taste."
