England’s “Queen of the Funky Harmonium” and her sidekick aren’t so much eccentric as insanely centric: Every track on this disc is built on a palindrome, be it melodic, poetic, alphabetic, or modal. Bonus points for cleverness, but the real score’s awarded for delightful baroque/cha-cha/prog/folk. —Pamela Murray Winters
