Here are some quotes from the choir and audience in a recent performance of my work by Weston Choral Cociety- See more comments on the Forum Page and the link to the news section on www.westonchoralsociety.org.uk/

I found it a privilege to have the opportunity to perform the work of Ray Saunders. For us it was a step into the unknown, and a very rewarding one it proved to be. I am sure I speak for many of our number when I say that I found the harmonies, melodies and subtleties of rhythm stayed with me for a long time afterwards, and that the marriage of words and music was not only very skilful, but also often haunting and evocative.

'I hear you calling' - Lovely, plaintive melody with words evoking a longing of home; full of challenging rhythms and timings.

  'Long, winding river' - Lovely again, with evocative sounds and words.

I myself really like the striking melodies, the poetic nature of the lyrics and the different ways in which the mood of the music evokes a song's meaning.
