She possesses that singular gift of a distinctive composer: the ability to make the most mundane of musical material, perhaps a simple scale passage or some bare octaves, seem surprising and strange. That's how her music comes upon its special flavour and its intrinsic elusiveness....Weir's art has deepened and complexified as it has developed, at the same time as her raw materials have become more simple.
Andrew Clements, The Guardian, 11/28/2003

Weir's music is impeccable, if unconventionally crafted...and every bar resonates with characteristic gestures and timbres.
Barry Millington, Evening Standard, 1/6/2004

'Judith Weir has one of the most distinctive compositional voices in contemporary music: her material tonal, largely folk-inspired, but always refracted through the prism of constantly varied shorter phrases; her diction direct and unfussy, yet somehow still elusive; her textures clear and dry, full of light and air.'
Anthony Burton, BBC Music Magazine, 4/1/2004
