"Morris balances every moment of humor with tenderness, all perfectly matched to the music."
"Morris can articulate, with the tiniest of lifts, the paradoxical mixture of sensuality and solemnity."
San Francisco Classical Voice
"Red blood turned into a crystal stream, love's joys converted into a gentle murmuring: it's not a sexy love, but a sweet, peaceful one, a pastoral one - a new, small jewel in Morris's crown."
The New Yorker
