'The centenary of Elisabeth Lutyens' birth this year has been passing almost unnoticed, just as her stature in British music went unappreciated for much of her composing career. This mixture of a cappella choral and instrumental works from the 1950s and 1960s is a timely and beautifully performed tribute' The Guardian

'The work is supremely approachable, with expressive, often simple harmonies offset by catchy rhythms, touching on popular styles in ways which echo Messiaen ond Berio' Gramophone
