“He was very well thought of by Stanford, at the Royal College of Music; and not just out of sympathy with allowing a negro composer a hearing in London. The Clarinet Quintet (that pleased Stanford) also received approval from Joachim. It is a very agreeable quintet, most acceptably performed and recorded, and as easy on the ear as its more famous predecessors (Mozart and Brahms). Petite suite de concert: lovable music; Other of the piano music could have great appeal: especially so could the arrangements of Negro Melodies with their easygoing simplicity” (MusicWeb)
