Guitart n. 70 (aprile-giugno 2013)
Un notebook di sei piccoli brani che gravitano attorno a un progetto di ieratica sacralità, e che, nonostante la lorosemplicità costruttiva (possiedono la freschezza degli appunti appena abbozzati), offrono all'esecutore suggestivispunti interpretativi ... (G. Giglio)

Classical Guitar Magazine (08-2012)
Here is a set of six short pieces, which are characterised by certain richness in voicing or counterpoint. Often one gets the feeling of almost vocal lines and indeed three of the pieces feel often as if they are transcriptions of choral pieces, as we find in lute or vihuela music. So there is a mix of the modern and the archaic all at the same time ... I liked this little set a great deal. It was very unusual and not too hard to play. It had a great deal of individuality to it, and I was continually intrigued by the juxtaposition of styles it presented. It is definitely worth a look. (Chris Dumigan)
