Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...Blackford takes the delightful, little-known poetry of St Francis of Assisi and builds a powerful cantata of great lyrical beauty, enhanced here by Ying Huang and Bo Skovhus, who exploit his ravishing solo melodies to the full." - Stephen Pritchard, The Observer, [November 2012]
