Reviews

‘Recordings of church bells from across Scotland feature in Suckling’s atmospheric new work… Taking Donne’s plea for a shared humanity for inspiration, Suckling beautifully evokes the conflicting emotions that peace brings. Keening strings and the mournful wail of an oboe are united by the solemn tolling of the bells which segue into bird song in the final bars of this moving elegy.'
The Scotsman (Susan Nickalls), 10 November 2018
