“It’s the most inspiring musical revival of the year... largely due to the emotional force of Goodall’s yearning, aching melodies that float and linger in the air and memory. 

Goodall’s music is so exhilaratingly good at establishing its atmosphere of nervous anxiety and simmering personal tensions on a World War II air force base”
