Review quote

[This] would be a good addition to a church choir's repertory . . . The harmonies are rich, but the individual lines offer few musical difficulties. It is good, in this age where almost anything goes, to hear chromatic harmony from a master of the craft. * Music Teacher, February 2003 *
