Notes & Reviews:

"Lemons descending is meant to be looked at, to be touched and to be listened to - all at once. This cohesive multimedia collector's item deserves savoring... The Taverner pieces, hauntingly spiritual, reveal how the composer's mid-life conversion to the Russian Orthodox faith influenced his work, while Woolf's harmonic language brilliantly underscores the emotionally charged words of the wedding blessing "Epithalamion."... Neither Haimovitz nor Clark misses a chance to use the music to reinforce the visual punch in Neruda's words." -Advocate Newspapers
