This work for solo piano has been described as "a haunting gem for a modern baby." (Blanks, Sydney Morning Herald)

"In a simple arch structure of eight bar phrases, it progresses in variations from naive simplicity to what could almost amount to a nightmare in the centre, then back to slumbering innocence once again." (Bibby, Music in New Zealand)
