. . . a gamut of emotions is expressed
during its 
eight minutes, 
from reverence and supplication
to mournfulness despair.

- textura

in the speaking silence is movingly austere...

Life . . . is especially haunting
- American Record Guide (July/August 2019)

. . . Life features soprano Arwen Myers in a 
dramatic and colorful solo
