Like much of Michael Finnissy's music, they make ferocious demands on player and listener, and on first sight the scores are daunting. But they are difficult for a reason, and the rewards to be reaped from careful study of these works will be considerable . . . But those who lament the 'exclusion' of the organ from the mainstream of contemporary musical life should take heart that a composer of Finnissy's eminence has added works of such significance to its
repertoire. * Choir & Organ March 2010 *
