"...the ultimate in postmodern Requiems..."
"Jenkins's gift for writing solid melodies according to the mood of the text is profound."
"I found " Requiem" to be very powerful composition. The weaving of Latin and Japanese is beautiful. I cannot get "Pie Jesu" out of my head and find myself singing it over and over again. Thank you for bringing this haunting music to accompany me in this often troubling world we live in."

""This is an excellent piece of work. I saw a live performance of Karl's Requiem in the Autumn and the music was so moving, especially the Pie Jesu. Most of the audience were in tears when we heard it.""

"A total contrast to the Requiems of Britten, Verdi, of Faure, yet an inspiring work by a brilliantly different composer - who else would think of setting the words of the 'Dies Irae' to a hip-hop beat - but don't let this put you off! Although not for the faint-hearted or purists amongst us, this work made a great contribution to the new choral music of 2005."
