Allmusic4.5/5 stars[2]

Thom Jurek of Allmusic stated: "When the reprise of the title tracks comes around to end the set, it's not like nothing ever was, it's more like nothing will ever be the same, as this fine music and these musicians have gone through a quiet transformation in the process of interpretation. They have done Ms. Peacock proud".[2]
