"Martin Bakari has a soulful quality to his pulsing, consistent tenor, and he seems to have a direct line into the emotional content of the songs. In the concluding 'A land of Silence', he manages a lovely floating tone as the melody maneuvers up to a high C, and his sound is thrilling at several musical climaxes."
— Joshua Rosenblum, Opera News
