Press Quotes  
"Composed in 2003 on a specially written text by David Harsent, The Ring Dance of the Nazarene is a pendant to The Last Supper. The Nazarene of the title is Christ, alternately represented by the solo baritone  and the chorus, and the event it depicts is reported in one of the apocryphal gospels; an Iranian drum represents the dance that Christ enacts before his disciples."
The Guardian
