Paths of Song is a new collection of works by leading Welsh contemporary composer John Metcalf. They explore a variety of engaging themes and ideas, with the works Paths of Song and Mapping Wales based on concepts of travel and journey in and around the composer’s homeland.

As well as contributions from a number of talented performers and ensembles, these works feature a key role for harpist Eleanor Turner (soloist and member of 4 girls 4 harps), who provides some truely standout performances.

This is Signum’s second release with composer John Metcalf - following 2007’s In Time of Daffodils with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales (SIGCD103):
’I have to concede it’s difficult not to be charmed ... The strength of Metcalf’s score lies in its horse-sure sense of shaping over an extended, one-movement span and his creative handling of the orchestra ...’ - Gramophone

"...His [Metcalf’s] music is tonal, conservative, melodic and songful, containing much of the flavour of the Welsh landscape... The entire program is recorded very close up and very well; the full sound of every instrument is captured. A refreshing album."

Ira Byelick - American Record Guide  March/April 2011


"The radiant,song-like music of an important figure in Welsh music."

Pwyll ap Sion

Gramophone - December 2010
