'Favola in Musica II' reviews

‘John Woolrich’s Favola in Musica II, a ‘retelling’ of the madrigal ‘O sia tranquillo il mare’ by saxophone, oboe, and percussion, explored a Monteverdian speciality: two-voice twinning now imitative, then in step; now in poignantly pressed discord, then in chains of sweet euphony.  And it explores the eloquent gestures and emotional tensions of the word-inspired melody divorced from the text.’
The Observer (Andrew Porter) January 1994
