Reviews

". . .begins with a merry bustle; it might be the prelude to some operatic scene of surging industry; then from the activity there rises, soaring and strong, a chorale. The piece is an allegory with a simple, moving aptness. . .that makes its immediate appeal; and with a richness and subtlety of musical organisation that will surely give lasting value to the occasional piece. . ." Andrew Porter, Financial Times, June 1967
