Review:
"...beautifully vivid writing, vividly sung...The William Appling Singers...and the instrumentalists are exceptional advocates for McClelland's appealingly direct manner of expression." (Gramophone)

"The choral work is excellent and the instrumentalists play with both exactitude and enthusiasm revealing a composer who is more than worthy of our attention." (Fanfare)
