Born in London in 1951, Cecilia McDowall is a composer who has developed an original and distinctive voice that speaks directly to listeners and performers alike. Her musical language is sufficiently versatile and adaptable to embrace instrumental and chamber pieces, orchestral scores, and works for the stage. McDowall’s keen sensitivity to text and her flair for writing vocal lines that are grateful to sing are just two of the virtues which justify the success of her choral music. Her original and distinctive voice is well served by Stephen Layton and his Trinity College forces.
