Notes & Reviews:

The Welsh composer Rhian Samuel received her early musical training from her father. After attending Reading University in England, she moved to the United States, studying at Washington University and teaching at the St. Louis Conservatory. She returned to England in 1984 and is now Professor of Music at City University, London. Her works are influenced by the Welsh language and countryside; by her 16 year stay in the United States; and by her work on the Women Composers' Dictionary, which raised her awareness of the special contribution of women and led to her subsequent choice of texts for her compositions.
