"The predominant emotional tone is on the one hand dramatic, working by dynamics and shock, and on the other, questioning, tense, loaded with doubt and regret: an angular phrase-work and untempered dissonance expressing an awareness of distance. There is no sense of resolution."

--Peter Riley, Musics (London), May, 1977
