    Gillian Whitehead
    by Justine Lord

"Whitehead's scores evoke times when our bush and forest must have seemed like the Garden of Eden, while Richard Nunn's taonga puoro set them in a mysterious landscape, with lilting birdcalls to something altogether wilder. In a word, indispensable."  
- William Dart
 
"This is Whitehead at her most dramatically powerful, tempting one to draw analogies with Mexico's Aztec Renaissance and the innovative Carlos Chavez in the 1930s and 1940s. He gave the movement its strongest musical force by integrating ancestral values of pre-Columbian Aztec music with western modernism...This is exactlly what Whitehead parallels with this pioneering CD and DVD in what we can safely call a Maori Renaissance."  
-Ian Dando, NZ Listener.
