Reviews
...James Agee's achingly tender prose poem in which he recalls a languorous summer evening spent as a young boy lying out with his family beneath the darkening sky....The bittersweet, warm yet lean harmonies of Barber's opening phrases perfectly disclose the curdled innocence of Agee's prose...
Jeremy Eichler, Boston Globe,30/09/2006
