Notes & Reviews:

This new release features Deirdre Gribbin's works for string quartet with voice. Born in Belfast, the composer's Catholic background, identification with Celtic folk tradition, fascination for myth, and love of remote landscapes have all influenced her music.

Gramophone Magazine, July 2013
The chamber domain seems ideally suited to her often inward and intimate manner of expression...Impressive playing, passionate and sensitive by turns, from the RTE Vanbrugh Quartet.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Curtis Auditorium, CIT Cork School of Music, Cork, Irel (03/31/2012-04/02/2012).
