From ONA JARMALAVIČIŪTĖ at Classical Music Daily – A nice review of the new Crossing album from Navona, which includes my piece, “Be Still.”

Bruce Babcock, another impressive composer featured here, is known for his expressive and vibrant sound and for the joint and joyous celebration of musical art. Surprisingly, his composition is called Be Still and it reflects on the meditative nature of music listening. It uses a liturgical source for its text – Psalm 46:10. The shimmering musical textures connect with the ascent, whilst only eight words from the psalm are used throughout the composition.
