MUSGRAVE: Rorate Coeli: "One of the richest and most imaginative things Thea Musgrave has done." Andrew Porter, The New Yorker." A setting full of text painting and dramatic energy" ... Four Madrigals: "Dance-like and pensive by turn, these settings of Sir Thomas Wyatt are delightful listening." Journal of Singing.
