Press Quotes  
"The disappearance of living things underlies the elegiac feel of the work... Strange and subtle effects from the instruments give the result an enriched atmosphere, with the words dissolving in cloudy textures punctured by percussive stabs... a fascinating addition to Birtwistle's oeuvre."
The Guardian
