"Cast in the context of a requiem, Requiem Fragments traces a lifespan from idyllic childhood and onwards through the complications and complexities of everyday life. Feeding into it are the experiences of expatriates and refugees, so it has a burning resonance today. Insecurity and loss of innocence inform the narrative, and the music conveys a sense of forward movement throughout."
– MUSICWEB INTERNATIONAL, Recording of the Month/Review of The Debrecen Passion by Boston Modern Orchestra Project and Lorelei Ensemble, 17 September 2016 (Stephen Greenbank)
"Requiem Fragments was moving and taut: rolling waves of tangled activity breaking into a cathartic tonal chorale - only to crash and collapse into a quiet, scattered ending."

- THE BOSTON MUSICAL INTELLIGENCER, Review of Requiem Fragments as performed by Boston Modern Orchestra Project, May 2010
"In the opening, piccolo and solo violin warily circled each other with super-high pianissimo notes and artificial harmonics. The effect was not so much ethereal as it was unearthly, the faint music of suns millions of light-years away."
