"The music of Stephen Halloran, while demonstrating a variety of styles, maintains a unique sound, easily recognizable in all of his works.  It is energetic, full of rhythmic vitality and uses a distinct harmonic language.  His works are effortless, witty and charming; they convince us that Stephen is a real composer"
