"parallel harmonies and ecstatic figurations abound but ultimately this is a delicate, touching work that will satisfy experienced organists and audiences."
Huw Morgan, Sunday by Sunday,01/12/2014
The theme’s transformations, as it acquired greater textural and harmonic complexity, were easily plotted (intelligibility is one of Weir’s greatest strengths) and Trotter’s use of the organ’s quieter reeds and flutes perfectly conveyed the work’s fascinatingly evocative nature.
David Hart, Birmingham Post,10/10/2013
