Notes & Reviews:

Grace Williams, one of the finest women composers of the twentieth century, but her work has been cruelly neglected. A pupil of Egon Wellesz and Ralph Vaughan Williams, she wrote passionate music influenced by both Mahler and Shostakovich. 'Fantasia on Welsh Nursery Tunes' is her most famous work.
