Grace Williams (1906-1977)
Apart from a few years spent in England, Grace Williams spent her entire life in Barry, the coastal town west of Cardiff where she was born. She loved the sea and the sense of the infinite it evokes, and its influence on her work is great. Donald Macleod visits the composer's home town, and talks to her niece, Eryl Freestone, and artist Ceri Thomas, who has just completed a painting of her inspired by her setting of Ave Maris Stella.
