Caduceus magazine review of “Mirrors of Light”
(Caduceus is one of the UK’s leading Arts, Healing and Spirituality magazines.)

“(the) music is both of its time and ahead of it: it is a bringing of spirit to matter in the medium of sound that touches the highest levels of lightness and grace”



Jay Ramsay, poetry editor and reviewer writes,

“I always tell people that Rosemary Duxbury is the real thing. She’s a rare phenomenon: a modern, female, classically trained composer whose work is in the tradition of Elgar and Benjamin Britten, and who is also inspired by Stockhausen, Keith Jarrett and the possibilities of computer technology. She’s also deeply inspired by poetry...” Read the full review...
