Gavin Borchert of the Seattle Weekly says, What is most marvelous about these songs is the absolute naturalness of Murray's way of setting a text flowing, never awkward, neither mannered nor simplistic. And there's invariably something compelling going on in the surrounding instrumental frame. Vocalist featured on the album are Andrew Childs, tenor; Ann Moss, soprano; and Chris Thompson, baritone. Murrays work for string orchestra Tempest Fantasy is featured on the Navona compilation SPELLBOUND (NV5911). Album features web-application which includes extended liner notes, scores, biographies, and more.
