Some  comments from critics:

“Wondrous to experience….yet another fine entrant in this series.”  

“Strange but profoundly haunting…totally beguiling.”

“A tremendously eerie effect, pardoxically becoming more atmospheric as the silence intrudes more and more..”

“One of my favourite pieces of music heard over the past several years…Just a phenomenal recording.”
