Praise from Opera News
"Martin Hennessy's setting of Paul Eluard's "Nous deux" lulls the listener
with a tonal, post-Romantic approach, then grows stormy before returning to
the comforting opening sonorities that represent two people at home wherever
they find themselves, as long as they're together."
Praise from the Financial Times
"Other highlights include a loving couple in the warm embrace of a string
quintet in Martin Hennessy's "Nous Deux."
