A review from Musique Machine:

(an extract from the review)..Those familiar with Roger Doyle's work will find much to admire in the refinement and quality of these compositions. For the uninitiated Frail Things In Eternal Places is as good an introduction to his work as any, bringing together many of the signature techniques, themes and working practices the composer has developed over his career. In particular the array of vocal talent and performance Doyle has brought together should open up this work to any listener interested in contemporary use of the voice.
