PRESS about his orchestral music:

"A major talent ... and a deep thinker with a great ear. ... His Requiem, ver.2.001x is distinctive, fascinating, and compelling."
–American Composers Orchestra press release

"The other standout on the program, McLoskey's Requiem...[is] a beautiful piece, one that conveys both ethereal solemnity and wrathful reckoning."
–Michael Manning, The Boston Globe

"Moraine...immediately grabs hold of the listener's attention with as commanding a statement by the orchestra as found in any other work.  With textures that vary from single-voiced solos to a harmony heavy with polytonality, the composer reveals here the talent that helped him win the prize."
–Marcus Kalipolites, The Times Herald Record

"Prex Penitentialis...[is] an evocative and inspired work that does a great job of connecting the centuries old script with today's troubled psyche. ...a modern work that resonates with the listener and doesn't attempt to alienate the audience."
–Jean-Yves Duperron, Classical Music Sentinel, May, 2011.

"Prex Penitentialis…an aura of early, simple-seeming church music - ethereal, chaste, distanced - darkened by slow stages into a musically complex and decidedly modern species of Angst.  Petrarch supplied the exquisitely tortured texts, Andrea Fullington (soprano) the exquisitely poised singing."
–Richard Buell, The Boston Globe
