“a contemplative work of profound beauty” and a “significant contemporary Requiem” Robert Hugill (Planet Hugill)
“a masterpiece” - Roderic Dunnett (Church Times)
“The ‘Sanctus’ is a sophisticated, extended movement, with a thrilling climax (‘Hosanna!’); the ‘Pie Jesu’ is an exquisite miniature, with a most affecting simplicity; the ‘Agnus Dei’ is a movement of suppressed passion, suffused by a rather Gallic melancholy. This Requiem will be a major addition to the concert and liturgical choral repertoire” John Quinn (Seen and Heard)
