Press Quotes  
The music is folklike, delightful, and increasingly boozy and woozy as the celebrations go on until the majesty of dawn, embodied in the arrival of a Highland bagpiper...This piece is great not just because it's ingenious and fun but because it is more than that, a celebration of nature and of humanity's place in it.
Boston Globe
