"Arvo Part's Triodion was for the 150th anniversary of Lancing College, and one can easily imagine the way in which its wispy lines of chant, extended pedals and repeated invocations would hang in the vastness of the chapel. The text links prayers to Jesus, to the Virgin Mary, and to St. Nicolas, each ending with a related petition. Much is achieved within its technical simplicity; it is a work to make time stand still for its fifteen-minute duration." (Church Music Quarterly, June 2002).
