Martin Anderson
Fanfare, December 2001

"The National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland under Robert Houlihan dispatches the music with complete conviction: It's music requires confident playing, and it certainly gets it. Good sound. A strong recommendation, you won't be surprised to hear."

Robert Matthew-Walker
International Record Review, September 2001

"This powerful score [Sinfonia] has stretches which are very impressive, particularly the second half of the finale, which ends this fascinating symphony in hard-won triumph. It receives a fine performance, as do all the works on this album. The recordings are very good indeed, richly balanced with the natural acoustic, and the booklet notes by Sarah Burn are excellent. This little -known composer has been outstandingly well served by this release. Very strongly recommended."
