Excerpt, from middle, of 'Points of Decision'.

'Points of Decision', on my first CD entitled "Journeys after…" has now been released by Parma Recordings on the Navona label.

Points of Decision "has a very mysterioso way about it--modern, evocative, on the neo-impressionist side of things in its vivid orchestral color. "

 "The writing is at turns bold, colourful, delicate and otherworldly"                 

Both works show Noyes as a figure to be reckoned with in the new orchestral sphere"

The recording in Olomouc, Czech Republic
