I ardently wish I could hear Mr. Montague’s shattering Requiem again and again. …It is not often that one comes across a composer with such a feeling for poetry, liturgy, speech, and even nonsense-speech, as well as for the superior language of music. I’d put him in the same class as Berlioz, Wolf, and Britten… the other, most positive emotion was the sheer excitement of hearing something completely new and of the finest quality. One cannot hope for many, if any, such epiphanies, after a long lifetime of listening.

Dr. Montague’s ability to communicate the complexities of the ‘new music’ with insight, wit and charm immediately won over his audience.
