Review quote

'Not no faceless Angel (2006)...deals with the big themes of loss and bereavement; here Jackson is at his most explicit, using his music to explain and to comfort when the words can go no further. The addition of instrumental timbres (cello and flute) in this piece seem especially poignant.' * Ed Breen, MusicalCriticism.com * 'Not no faceless Angel is triumphantly holistic in its impact, with some soaring, ecstatic soprano writing particularly catching the ear, and a wistful, touchingly deployed harmonic scheme etching out the poem's emotions.' * Terry Blain, BBC Music Magazine *show more
