Press reviews

“Wilson is a composer who, understandably, finds that texts suitable for setting to music are rare. His approach to Frank Sewell’s translation of a love poem by Cathal O’Searcaigh is clear and immediate, his response to the text sensitive and exact.”

(The Irish Times, 3 May 2000. The National Chamber Choir/Colin Mawby)
