'Another invaluable issue from Hyperion' (Music and Musicians)
Love reflects the blend of craftsmanship and inspiration that had placed Elgar at the summit of Edwardian musical life: both qualities emerge in his treatment of Maquarie’s line ‘Cease to be’, repeated four times in the bass line and richly decorated in the tenor part’s flowing melody.
