Classical Notes C D Reviews
…a great showcase for a British composer I would definitely like to hear more from. It’s good to know that composers such as McNeff, and notably others such as Jonathan Dove, are still composing ambitious works for large chorus and orchestra.

(McNeff) was the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra’s Composer in the House from 2005-2008. During this time he wrote some 25 works for the orchestra and its progeny ensembles. These four works derive from the clearly blessed period. These world première recordings of McNeff’s bejewelled music are conducted by Dominic Wheeler – a staunch advocate of McNeff’s music. The sound is superbly put across by the Dutton engineers.  Rob Barnett

Planet Hugill
McNeff’s works on this disc are all fascinating and accessible in the best possible way. This is contemporary music which neither talks down nor revels in obscurantism. You can imagine people enjoying the works at many levels and it is a tribute to the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra’s support for McNeff that we have this disc.  Robert Hugill

Classical CD Review
There is much to appreciate in terms of professional expertise in this music, particularly in the Sinfonia…  Weathers comes across as being the most consistently felt… it is exceptionally well laid out for chorus and orchestra.  …the piece makes a strong impression.  McNeff’s word setting is very good indeed.  Robert Walker
