Press Quotes  
"One moment the choir transported us close to heaven, the next we were strung over the abyss, hounded by a swarm of buzzing strings and pounded by a deafening percussion arsenal. On earth the defendant seemed helpless against the sin-peddling devils, niggled to envy by the mocking soprano and flutes, or driven to lust by a crescendo of male voices. In the end he is granted salvation. The gates of heaven swing open for him, eternal light heralded by silky flute and violin solos and the shimmering double chorus of In Paradisum." (Jenny Camilleri, bachtrack, 07 Nov 2016)
