This work is an appealing treatment of various hymn tunes woven together into one continuous showcase for the solo vibist`s musicality and interpretive abilities. Suitable for the recital hall or sacred settings... offers ample opportunity for expression and sufficient technical material to impress the listener."" (Percussive Notes)"
