Notes & Reviews:

"..Although Stevens's opera has yet to receive its first staging, this excellent and vividly dramatic recording of the first BBC broadcast performance in 1983 provides eloquent testimony to the composer's fluid and highly expressive vocal writing - qualities that are also much in evidence in the 1974 song cycle "The True Dark." ***** -BBC Music
