review extracts: for full reviews click here
“[Silentia Noctis] has a vocal line acutely sensitive to the texts and a hinting, alluding and prompting piano line, this is a fine and in many ways compelling setting. Caroline MacPhie and David Jones, both excellent. [Duologue is a] thoroughly convincing and appealing work. Lewis has been admirably served by his engineers and by committed and subtly performances” – Jonathan Woolf (Music Web)
