MEDIA REVIEWS
The slippery tonality morphs continually through the piece, requiring a careful eye on accidentals. Berkeley prepares his unusual harmonies so well that even a few thorny verticalities are both easily approached by singers and remarkably consonant to listeners' ears. Periodic appearances of echoing solos afford many singers short solo passages, or Berkeley allows for all echoes to be sung by full section . . . The organ accompaniment is not complex, yet it is an equal partner with the voices in the texture . . . This motet is best for seasoned choirs, as much because of the length as because of the demands of the notes. It would also be a terrific featured work for treble festivals. * Jason Overall, AAM Journal, February 2017 *
