Consisting of a variety of thematic pieces, Scattered Rhymes "is truly virtuosic in its combination of three Italian poems by Petrarch (sung by the Orlando Consort) and choral settings of an anonymous medieval Latin poem from England" (American Record Guide). The Washington Post praises the work as "exquisite and delicate."
