"In any other job you'd get locked up for hearing sounds in your head!" Jill Jarman

"The concluding piece by contemporary composer Jill Jarman, Now are my thoughts at peace, is fantastic". Mark Seow GRAMOPHONE

"...swirling and vibrant writing for the viols, which supports and comments on the sensitive but succinct setting of the text. No pastiche, this piece is highly approachable and yet original and beguiling". Garry Higginson, Music Webb International

"The world music-infused Global Chant is a 360-degree experience; marbles rattled in steel pans, a clarinet and flute play from within the audience, eastern sounds and modes drift around our heads like exotic perfume". Stephen Iliffe writer and photographer

"...Buddhist-influenced double concerto by the British composer Jill Jarman for percussion (marimba and vibraphone), violin and chamber orchestra. It became a musical stream of consciousness, where the solo instruments sometimes answered and sometimes extended to each other in a dynamic appealing dialogue". Johanna Paulsson, Dagens Nyheter (the news of the day, Sweden).

She is a composer of the highest calibre with a style that is a very special combination of complexity and accessibility. Hugo Ticciati (Violinist and Artistic Director of O/Modernt)
