The Snow Queen works particularly well ... one of the BBC's more distinguished opera for radio commissions."   Tempo

"Ward's music is direct clear and expressive; players and, I should guess, particularly singers must find his work grateful to perform ... Ward's compositions display, at their best, the stamp of the authentic, the 'necessary'."   Classical Music

"Ward's deeply felt response to the texts manifests itself in a thoroughly extrovert way, unflinchingly passionate and heedless of any possible accusations of excess."  Jane Manning on Three Sonnets to Orpheus in her book New Vocal Repertoire, Volume 2
