Contemporary Classical Music with a Celtic Twist
Scottish-American Composer
Jennifer Margaret Barker’s compositions have been hailed by critics in North America, Europe and Asia as “extraordinarily moving”, “soul-stirring”, “at once gripping and timeless”, “blazingly alive, with lovely, aching melodies”, “show-stopping”, “anything but passive”, “beautiful...warm”, “haunting”, “illuminated by dreamy images”, and her compositional output has been noted for its “amazing array” and “striking writing”.
Featured: Dumgoyne score for flute and harpsichord, combined with still frame from filming session at Eilean Donan Castle in Scotland. 
Permission to film for 2005 Geenyoch CD/DVD at Eilean Donan Castle granted by the trustees.

  "The most haunting is Scottish-American Jennifer Margaret Barker's ...to the             pale green sea of evening..., a lovely invocation of the Mediterranean colours            and moods of Malta and Gozo."
