The 20th century composer John Bevan Baker was an artist whose deeply held values were embodied in his challenging, tightly-structured, hauntingly beautiful compositions.
His music never fails to provoke admiration for its ability to convey a depth, integrity, and love of life.
"Bevan Baker's music glistens with excitement and vitality, refreshing in its originality..."
"Here was a lyricist of a special sort, who could convey his
ideas with simplicity of utterance, in tones that were limpid,
concise, but never cramped."
Conrad Wilson, The Herald
