"A brilliant, bold portrayal of a contemporary tragedy..."
-Daphna Levitt, Opera Canada. Best Operas of the Decade, on I will fly like a bird
"Plant's setting of this poem (Canciones del alma) succeeds in transcending the limits of musical style to give articulation to experiences which are almost beyond the realm of language, verbal or musical. John Plant, a composer who has a significant message for our time."
-Wolfgang Bottenberg, Montreal Mirror, 20 January 2000
