An innovative approach to word painting and a care for the rhythm of the words is evident on this third installment in the “Beckett trilogy” of albums by the Scott Fields Ensemble, following 'Beckett' (2007) and 'Samuel' (2009). In Barclay (2018), Fields approaches a new batch of Beckett plays seeking structure for his compositions and the guitarist / composer further succeeds in maintaining the repetition and character of the original texts, while at the same time never uttering a word – this is instrumental music.     [...]     A welcome and long-anticipated encore from the Scott Fields Ensemble.

(from Dr. John McGrath's liner notes)
