“There was a lot going on in this score and the music effectively became another character in the show with a sense of quirkiness and drama – which is hard to pull off, but done so with aplomb in this winning entry.” - RTS Awards Jury on Flowers
“A hauntingly beautiful soundtrack that tied in perfectly with the mood of the programme.” - Televisual Magazine on Flowers
