'It is a fine work, very professionally scored, flattering the voices, never writing against the vocal grain. There are some highly effective, indeed moving, contrasts – the first song, for example, is characterised by an ethereally floating soprano line while the second places its emphasis on the bass. Most beautiful of them is the fourth, playing with cadences as water plays with sunbeams; the effect is magical'
Sydney Morning Herald (Fred Blanks), 6 August 1981
