Reviews
His score here is cast in the form of a series of "blocks" of music, each rich in cross-rhythms, based on a repeated figure, and keeping closely to the home key. Some blocks beat up the familiar Nyman frenzy, but others are grave and graceful. [...] Nyman now writes with real affection for the human voice. At those moments when Hastings' libretto becomes Blakean in its tender simplicity, the score faithfully follows. This marriage of words and music is a nice place to inhabit.
Michael Church, The Independent,7/18/2007
