‘Griffiths really has developed his own style… All of his compositions uniquely his own.’

‘… extremely impressive mastery of style and range of emotions…’

‘The music ebbs and flows, rising to pitches of excitement, then lapsing back into
melancholy. That is scarcely an unusual expressive combination, but it is achieved with great skill.’
– News Weekly, Melbourne
