“Ever since we were colleagues at the Tasmanian Conservatorium of Music, where I witnessed his remarkably transformative and inspirational teaching, I have regarded Micheál McCarthy as one of the finest choral directors I know. His unique approach blends a deep knowledge of choral traditions, exceptional technical command and, crucially, imagination and a quirky, disarming humour. In all, a superb musician for whom I have the utmost respect.”
