…neat canonic writing…

Arthur Milner, The Musical Times, October 1967

Its simplicity is touching.

William Varcoe, The Lincolnshire Echo, 25th October 1968

(The Danish and Swedish carols) both have a haunting musical arrangement which will make them an unusual acquisition to the Christmas repertoire.

Max Laidlaw, The Leader Post (Regina, Canada), 23th August 1969
