'Far from home' reviews

‘… wistful … the lullaby itself proved to be melodious contribution to the neo-romantic English choral tradition of gentle gravitas and cool harmony.  Woolrich’s text, sewn together out of folksong scraps from remote corners of Europe, ranges through darker regions of sleep and dreaming than many lullabies care to explore.  The unaccompanied choral writing also wanders somewhat from one musical incident or idea to the next, rocking and musing but then a certain aimlessness is implicit in the lullaby idiom.’
Ham & High (Antonia Denford), 22 October 1993
