Notes & Reviews:

"This release shows consistency in Mumford's vision, though I also think it demonstrates continued growth. Mumford studied with Elliott Carter, and this composer shines through as the strongest influence, not a bad thing at all. Like Carter, Mumford specializes in bright, resonant, but non- tonal sonorities... Mumford strikes me as having a gentler vision than Carter, and one that allows for more sustained lyric and thematic materials... I also admire this music very much. It has a deep thoughtful, even soulful integrity at its best... The performances are consistently excellent, showing a close engagement with the music on all the performers' parts... The sound serves the music well." -Fanfare
