Reviews

The integrity of the story is marvellously scattered among chorus and guitar. This was an easy hour to spend, and I was engrossed the entire time. Enthusiastically recommended! Read the full review here.
Steven Ritter, Audiophile Audition, 10/23/2011

His compositional style, a captivating extension of the English choral tradition, coloured by American minimalism and set within a largely tonal and modal harmonic language, has the quality of being both accessible to the masses and complex enough for the cognoscenti. His forces are comparatively small...however, the resultant sound is rich indeed. Sometimes exhilarating, always atmospheric, the work demonstrates O'Regan's natural feel for the voice, is deftly multi-textured part-writing, and his strong rhythms. ...There's a lovely sense of intimacy and wonder-filled narration. All told, this is yet another beautiful Tarik O'Regan disc.
Charlotte Gardner, BBC Review, 10/21/2011

What a splendid recording this is, with soprano vocals that sail through the glass ceiling and blend seamlessly with a mixed choir's...ethereal polyphonic vocals. ...I highly recommend this contemplative recording. Click here for the full review.

O'Regan's writing makes for time-travel extraordinaire. When you wish to be transported not only by a story, but also by the emotions behind it, consider this.
