"During the 1940s and 50s Creston was among the most widely performed American composers, although his work went into eclipse during the 1960s with the ascendancy of more radically modernist approaches. However, with the revival of interest in the American symphonic school, his music has found a new following." Walter G. Simmons in Grove Music Online
