Notes & Reviews:
"Spend all you have for loveliness. Buy it and never count the cost." Pulitzer prizewinning poetess Teasdale offers advice that can be hard to follow when so many lives are filled with stress or unmet expectations. Life's loveliness comes from relationships, family, friends, and music. The compositions presented here come from a variety of stylistic backgrounds, but are bound together by their finding of life's loveliness.
American Record Guide, March / April 2013
Joan Szymko's 'Arise, My Love', Ola Gjeilo's 'Ubi Caritas', Daniel Hall's 'Indian Summer', and David Childs's 'Life's Loveliness' are among the most affecting. Surely Stetson's School of Music, a well-intentioned alum, the university itself, or all of the above could kick in to bankroll better recordings of the Women's Chorale in the future. These young woman are terrific ambassadors for Stetson, and you'd think the school would want to show them off to everyone's best advantage.
