Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Mealor is one of the most important composers to have emerged in Welsh Music since William Mathias...a real and original talen...Music of serene beauty, fastidious craftsmanship and architectural assuredness...Music of deep spiritual searching that always asks questions, offers answers and fills the listener with hope..." -- New York Times

"Serene and beautiful" -- Gramophone

"This is music of deep introspection with luminous tonality and a real directness and openness of expression...I wept tears of joy from beginning to end..." -- NYE New York Magazine
