The superb Chilingirian Quartet plays McEwen with dependable skill, sensitivity, and heartfelt devotion; and the recorded sound is strikng, clear, and natural. Music lovers should be grateful to Chandos for the companys continuing efforts to rescue this wonderful composer from almost complete oblivion.
American Record Guide

'The Chilingirian Quartet does McEwen proud. Production values too, are first-rate, with Snape Maltings' acoustic lending an agreeable bloom to proceedings. A hearty recommendation.'
