The reviewers of Love's Old Sweet Songs say:

Kitchener-Waterloo Record:
"If you've always dreamed of hosting an elegant, yet cheery musical soiree right in your own living-room, the 20 classical and not-so-classical miniatures on Love's Old Sweet Songs come pretty close to custom-made... Last year, in the dead of winter, Bennett and Finley found a few precious hours from international careers that often take them in opposite directions for weeks at time. With the help of violinist friend Terance Tam, they laid down these winsome, varied and technically impeccable tracks that bring sentimental poetry and nostalgic tunes back into fashion..."

"If the aim of this unpretentious collection was to both relax and delight listeners, Bennett and Finley have succeeded once again. Love's Old Sweet Songs could be a widely pleasing gift, or just a nice treat to keep for yourself. "
- Pauline Finch Durichen

Lullabies for Benjamin

The reviewers say:

Today's Parent:
"An exquisite collection with a classical touch, Lullabies for Benjamin is the latest and the best in the ever-growing volume of lullaby recordings... music that treats the ears while it soothes the soul."

Tree House Magazine:
"Beautiful music that bothe toddlers and parents will enjoy: what more could you want in a kids' recording?"

RPM Magazine:
"Just slap this on, and marvel as your child is soothed to sleep by the beautiful tones of pianist Brian Finley and soprano Donna Bennett. The lullabies themselves are perennial favourites, ranging from Brahms, to Schubert to three originals by Finley himself. Funny thing is, I found myself nodding off while listening to this disc, as it has a certain universal trance-like quality... The perfect all ages soother."

The News/Post:
"Lullabies for Benjamin is a sweetly charming collection of songs... [that] children will enjoy but they're not children's songs per se... [It's] an album of music truly for 'children of all ages'...children who love good music admirably and lovingly performed." - Bill Watt
