"A special mention for the music; a quartet of singers provides commentary on the text with songs beautifully set by Nigel Hess, and the musical accompaniment complements the staging excellently" - Whats On Stage"Nigel Hess's music, often used filmically, as in Juliet's imagining her future tomb, was beautiful, especially the close harmony quartet." - Michael Gray's Arts Blog"There is excellent music, set to 16th-century poems by Nigel Hess." - Sunday Times"Nigel Hess, working in tandem with the Globe musicians, has interwoven a fabric of atmospheric sounds and themes throughout the performance. The effect is often haunting and lends a subtle pathos to the play’s more melancholy moments when the daylight drains from the sky and the wooden O seems to warm up in the cool of evening." - Arts Hub
