“Perhaps Todd's best work so far. His trademark ominously rumbling orchestrations pressing close upon the choir, giving way to radiant light for rhapsodic vocal solos. But perhaps most impressive, and moving, was the uniformed Riverside Band marching proudly under its banner along the Cathedral's length." Thomas Hall/ The Journal, Newcastle/ 2004
