Notes & Reviews:

British composer Roy Heaton Smith (1928-2014) was a student of Richard Hall and Noel Walton. During his student days, he won a Royal Philharmonic Prize as well as a scholarship from the Royal Academy. Smith wrote an enormous catalog of music in many different genres and styles. While his early works were published, later in his life he devoted himself to teaching and no longer published his compositions. This release is the first album totally devoted to his music, and all of these recordings are receiving their premiere on this release.
