'Whitman Settings (orchestral)' reviews

'Every complex accompaniment in this song-cycle was beautifully and precisely judged, with wind and brass chords that seemed to ring with the clarity of bells.'
Malcolm Hayes, Telegraph, 9 March 1992

'None of the four songs lasts more than a few minutes, yet they pack in an astonishing range of emotional and vocal nuance...with wonderfully lucid colours drawn from a vast ensemble; each song seems to define its sound world within a couple of bars, compressed into a phrase or a couple of chords.  They are beautifully achieved little songs, brought off with the lightest of touches.'
Andrew Clements, Financial Times, 10 March 1992
