Notes & Reviews:

"Loges [is] powerfully eloquent...In Terrible Beauty, Matthews vividly juxtaposes seductress evocations by Homer of Hera (sung by Bickley, with harp accompaniment) and Shakespeare of Cleopatra. Winter Passions is a fine baritone cycle of three of DM Thomas’s Pushkin translations." -The Sunday Times

"Matthews's ability to write music which is not merely "upbeat" but expressively wide-ranging and emotionally exuberant is heard here at its best...[his] bold eloquence takes on an evocative late-Romantic quality...that moves forward with rapt determination. Performance values are of the highest throughout this disc." -Gramophone

"The writing has many of David Matthews's familiar strengths: a fine sensuous imagination, adventurous harmony that makes clear aural sense, an equally clear sense of organic development of ideas...It's hard to imagine this music played, sung, or recorded better." -BBC Music Magazine
