Review By Simon Thompson,MusicWeb International,April 2013

This disc is a profoundly beautiful and supremely effective meditation on the theme of death and mourning. Part of its power comes in the way it intelligently juxtaposes a number of works that would normally never be heard together…one of the strengths of the disc is that you are welcome to delve as deep into that side of things as you like, but you are under no obligation to do so; if you choose simply to listen to the beautiful music then there is plenty of space to do just that.
