Reviews of Ma Guiterre je te chante:
“The voice is pleasing, clear, well-tuned; the French is correctly pronounced.” —Pascale Boquet, French Lute Society publication Le Joueur de Luth, September 2010

“Bartram has a real feel for this music. In spite of the limited range of the melodies the songs cover a wide range of emotions which she captures with a sure sense of style and subtle variations in the ornamentation ensure that the music is always memorable. . . . It is good to see the repertoire for 4-course guitar receiving the attention which it deserves from artists of this calibre.” —Monica Hall, Lute News, Journal of the UK Lute Society, No. 96, December 2010

Featured on the early music radio program, The Millennium of Music, hosted by Robert Aubry Davis, in 2013, broadcast across the US.
