Moonstrung Air is Q2’s Album of the Week for Feb 16th, 2015: “[Brown’s] command of transcendent sound is constant. Through ambitious dissonances and risky concepts, ‘Moonstrung Air’ is anything but absent of higher powers. In fact, the pieces ring like higher-power-bells, those of science, faith and the human voice.” — Elena Saavedra Buckley

“…in particular Brown is the only contemporary composer I can recall who crafts vocal lines that have the same sense of independent harmonic rhythm and expressive freedom that makes the madrigals of Monteverdi and the like so powerful.” — George Grella; sequenza21

“In festivals and music conventions over the last two decades, I have heard a surfeit of contemporary sacred music, and no composer has impressed me more than Gregory Brown.” — Ken Herman; San Diego Story

“Brown’s writing combines traditional polyphony with more angular melodic lines, with strong passing dissonances. … The result is very striking, a wonderful confluence of old and new polyphony and moments, like the Alleluia, are highly evocative. … [Missa Charles Darwin] is a fascinating piece, traditional polyphony re-interpreted for modern times.” — Robert Hugill; Planet Hugill
