Lots of very musical phrasing and a great introduction to sensitive modern harmony. This piece can serve as a a great exercise for intonation, style, and ensemble. An excellent piece for mid-level and high school contest use.
ITG Journal, January 2021, page 101:
"...a beautiful two-movement composition..." "...a well written, moderately easy compositon that presents a nice challenge for a high school or lower-level collegiate ensemble looking for a work to showcase their ability to perform wtith the vocal realm. With beautiful open harmonies including perfect fourths and fifths, dramatic dynamic changes, straighforward syncopation and an accessible range, (the piece) can serve as a recital selection, concert number, mid-level high school contest piece, or church service or sacred venue feature."
