'The textures Harvey draws from his small orchestra of strings and percussion are as fascinating as they are fastidious, and at times spectacular.  But for the most part, the music is gentle, contemplative and exquisitely beautiful.'
The Times (Rodney Milnes), June 2002

'… the theme is a Buddhist renunciation of life, played out against a background of numinous natural beauty.  In setting these texts so close to his heart Harvey has produced an eloquent essay in finely-drawn string sonorities.'
Opera Magazine (Paul Driver), September 2002
