Misc. Comments

Reviews

...astonishing, fully mature, intelligent, inspired pieces written by a 20-year-old using melodic and contrapuntal procedures very like those revealed in last Sunday’s all-Fine concert to be her present manner. The text-setting is marvelous. Only Virgil Thomson’s setting of the English language rivals it among 20th century composers. It is natural, perfectly speech-like, yet measured and expressive.

—Charles Shere, The Oakland Tribune, January 15, 1983
