"An ample and well-written text details the purpose behind these ritual chants, among which a rare cycle is heard in its entirety. The remoteness ofTibetcreated and preserved a musical practice which is absolutely unique. For those familiar with Tibetan chanting, it will be a welcome offering to hear the chanting from this once-vital monastery. Once being the keyword, as the text underscores the genocide and destruction vent on the peaceful Tibetan nation by the occupying Chinese, a horrific tragedy which continues.…The monastery, or better, its survivors, went into exile inIndia. Their sad story is told in the text."

—Allan Evans, Fanfare
