From Constant Lambert (conductor)
The Passacaglia went very well I think, though I had only 3 hours in which to rehearse the whole concert. Fortunately it is so well scored that there is nothing much to do except give the leads and see they keep the proper balance.
From the 'Glasgow Herald', January 1932
The Passacaglia is typical of the healthy outlook of our young composers. Mr Jacob has turned this staid and musical form to charming and entertaining uses and it ought to be grateful to have its expressive field so happily enlarged.
