Biography "Molitor is a composer who has done some good service in writing in a very easy style for village choirs, but he is not by any means a representative Caecilian composer...the artistic worth of these three masses is small. There prevails in them such a poverty of melodious invention and rhythmical life that it is to be wished that choirs may make use of such inferior compositions only as far as necessity may oblige them to do so." -- Fr. Philip Limerick, in Lyra Ecclesiastica, Dec. 1887 (Cited in Daly, K.A., Catholic Church Music in Ireland 1878-1903, Dublin: Four Courts Press 1995
