Notes & Reviews:

Grace Williams (1906-1977) may be considered one of the finest women composers of the twentieth century, but her work has been cruelly neglected. "The orchestral compositions reveal a distinctive personality, but Williams is still more impressive in the neo-Straussian opulence of Fairest Stars." - Gramophone
