Review quote

As usual with Skempton, the SATB texture is euphonious, the text setting clear and almost entirely syllabic - there is rigour at work beneath the amiable surface, though that surface here is troubled by chromatics and unexpected harmonies, capturing the darker tones of Blake's reverie. * Matthew Greenall, The Singer August 08 *show more
