Review quote

A commissioned setting by Howard Skempton of the text And there was war in Heaven was constantly imaginative. It embraced shifting drones, uneasy interplay of semitone and tones, slurs almost like quartertones, and at one stage what sounded like Skemptons own pared-down version of Arvo Part's rocking tintinnabuli technique. * Roderic Dunnett, Church Times, October 2006 *show more
