“I hope we hear much more from Brian Noyes. In these works he shows himself to be a natural in the orchestral realm. Bravo!”

“if you want to explore Noyes’ unique talent and artistic voice, this disc is worthy of a listen.”

“Shadows of Memory is even more impressive”

“…more turbulent and harmonically stretched. Both works show Noyes as a figure to be reckoned with in the new orchestral sphere” 

The CD “Journeys after…” is available from Amazon and as a download from iTunes.
