"Passion brings us together in celebration; the
impermanence of life adds urgency to our loves. Here we get a music of
interpenetrating melodies rising and falling like breaths and pulses and
racing hearts, unrelentingly driving towards climactic ecstasy,
a musical reflection on our most urgent passions."
--Matthew H. Fields
