"My expectations were surpassed – from start to finish; the music was different and haunting. There were moments that, when I closed my eyes, the noises came together with unexpected clatters, bursts followed delicate hovering moments. [...] The opening track, Winter Fog [By Helgi Ingvarsson, listen HERE] began with operatic-style singing and the lyrics described the images of the mountains. They also inadvertently introduced us to the landscape that had obviously captured the imagination of the composer. [...] I really enjoyed this evening of music." - Lou Clement
