The vocal sextet Schwirren sustain chill and challenge from beginning to end. This is a fascinatingly poetic musical response to a remarkable text, executed by a crack team of singers., Dominy Clements

I can barely begin to describe the virtuosity of the work (Schwirren), from its opening, impossibly discordant screech to desperate, vocalized flailing to overlapping recitation. I can say this: in my auditory memory it became a marriage of music and text not to be put asunder. 2006, Don Lee
