"A treat. This is a lovely melodic and accessible work, and Lindberg and his
orchestra made the most of it."
The Washington Post
"Only a curmudgeon would fail to appreciate the charm and understatement of Jack Gallagher's Berceuse, with its hints of Barber's melancholy lyricism."
"Features string writing that has an English pastoral feel, a bit like Ralph Vaughan Williams in its dawnlike evocations."
Akron Beacon Journal
"Exactly what a lullaby should be -- a simple, lyrical melody, a rocking rhythm, and nothing harsh . . . It is spontaneous . . . music of genuine merit."
