I just finished listening to the Season of Miracles track. I LOVE IT!! What you guys did with the piece is fantastic, what can I say. I am so pleased! Thank you so much for adding all the small touches here and there to make the piece and the recording what it is! We are partners in this project for sure.
– Andrew Bleckner, composer of Season of Miracles: Meditation and Dance
Wow. An incredible recording all around. Thanks so very much. I’m so glad to get to hear the Doxology again; have not heard it – obviously! – since the AGO conference. And it’s great to hear some new tunes I have yet to meet. The variety is terrific – and So Well Played. I love it!
