Notes & Reviews:

"'Cadman Requiem' was written in memory of Bryars's sound engineer, Bill Cadman, who was killed in the Lockerbie plane crash, and for the most part it's a dark, harmonically bare piece. The vocal writing, which is often in unison, is perfectly offset by the plangent timbre of the viols... a near comparison might be Arvo Part, though Bryars is much more quirky, and you never encounter quite what you expect around the corner." -BCC Music. "No doubt this was a special occasion... The Hilliards give a very solid performance... Bryers's re-working of [The Cadman Requiem] for viols is very effective." -Gramophone.
