Margaret Rizza sang professionally for twenty-five years, before teaching at London’s Guildhall School of Music and Drama. She has directed music groups, making many recordings. She began composing in 1997 and has since earned huge admiration for her ‘Classical Contemporary’ sound world, works of spiritual contemplation and great beauty. Hers is music of great spiritual depth and, whether a cappella or for vocal and instrumental forces, it generates a sense of lyricism and healing resolution.

"...Rizza is a composer with a voice of her own ...The Gaudete Ensemble is very much more than [an amateur group], and the composer will surely be thrilled to hear her music sing with such skill and sensitivity. The instrumental playing is faultless too, and the whole is ably held together by conductor Eamonn Dougan… if ‘contemplative and spiritual’ is your think ... this will fit the bill." 

 
William Hedley - International Record Review - December 2012

"...Sweetly consolatory and reassuring."
 
Terry Blain - BBC Music Magazine - December 2012
 

 "Here we have a very enjoyable survey of lovely sacred choral pieces... Performances, whether from the singers or players, are admirably well crafted, with no appreciable weaknesses. Choral textures and sound are typically English: bright and clear, with cool, yet committed spiritual sincerity..."
