Daily Telegraph 1989

‘A Conifer disc of three works by Peter Dickinson contains his remarkable Outcry, a cantata for mezzo-soprano (Meriel Dickinson) chorus and orchestra in which five poems about cruelty to animals are set with an inventive fertility that is at its peak in the chilling description of a badger hunt. Minimalist procedures are used with discretion and genuine imagination in the Mass of the Apocalypse…while The Unicorns, in which Elisabeth Söderström  is accompanied by brass, is another gripping demonstration of Dickinson’s responsiveness to words.’
