    "Bennetts and Bowman are a truly incredible pair on recorders ­ the sounds are uncanny, wild and a million miles from your expectations . . . Bousted is a major new arrival in British microtonal composition . . . his music has great elegance, wit and substance." British Harry Partch Society

    "Bousted has attempted to develop a new "tonality" and sound world . . . through a carefully worked out quarter-tone system ... an excellent addition to our contemporary repertoire." The Recorder Magazine (Sheet Music)

    "Bennetts and Bowman perform well. Their intonation is superb and their tone is well-matched. Since listening to this recording and becoming more familiar with the quarter-tone language, the piece holds more and more interest. It is challenging, but becomes more accessible each time one listens to it . . . the recording is compelling and ought to hold a place in every contemporary recorder player¹s collection." The Recorder Magazine (CD)
