    An extraordinary 80-minute concept album. [Oct 2020, p.91]

    Cantus, Descant is accessible without ever feeling thoughtless, plays to Davachi's sonic strengths, and provides just enough experimentation and variety to justify its daunting running time. It's a journey worth taking.

    With Cantus, Descant, Davachi has arrived at maybe her purest distillation of those ideals. The attention to detail is itself a kind of time warp; in its patient hold, the music becomes something entirely new.

    Overall, while the album certainly has some parts that stunningly wash over you, it has many others that simply wash away.

    Cantus, Descant is an album that functions as meditative background music, but turn it up and it becomes an unignorable study in sound.
