Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
Black Lanterns and Nigredo are also single-movement works, both expanding from small beginnings into areas of virtuosity which are effortlessly negotiated by Rolf Hind. He brings a richness of texture and rhythmic inevitability to the music, backed up by the natural sound of the Potton Hall acoustic.

Gramophone Magazine
The CD's title links alchemy with Jungian psychology, and it's the important of transformation to both that gives Holt his musical cue for an absorbing journey from - it would seem - darkness to light. Rolf Hind is the perfect interpreter throughout and the Potton Hall recording is of demonstration quality.
