“Three works were given their first performances [by the London Sinfonietta]. By far the most individual was Herrington's Symphonia, which put aural memories of the composer's Texas childhood through the mincer.” (The London Times)

"What does one get from crossbreeding Darmstadt master classes with childhood exposure to hymns of the American South and formal training at the Royal Academy of Music, London?  Apparently something as attractively individual as B.P. Herrington's 'That Blood's Too Red.'  This short piece is modern but not at all academic-sounding, and it combines dissonance and rhythmic complexity with episodes of quasi-tonal and rhythmically stable tranquility in such a way that the music never becomes gratuitously abrasive or boringly accessible." (InstantEncore.com)

"This was indeed homage to Berio – from another voice, clear and individual."  - Kenneth Carter (Classical Source) on "In Returning and Rest" at the Berio OMAGGIO Concert

"The moments of clarity in this powerful antiphonal work for winds perfectly balance out the purposeful disarray and sporadic gestures to invoke the "verses from the thicket." - American Prize jury on "Verses from the Thicket" for wind ensemble
