The American Organist Many of their pieces are commissions by the choir; most are unaccompanied … this disciplined troop demonstrates what women’s voices can achieve in a fine acoustic. – Vernon Gotwals

The American Record Guide “From the picture, this looks to be a choir of about 32 voices–and very accomplished ones they are too. … The technical stuff is all in order and, better yet, these are singers who love what they‘re doing. Lots of spunk … Here‘s hoping that St. Mary‘s Music Department is supported to the hilt (and more!) by their administration. The girls have made the old alma mater look pretty snazzy indeed with this release.“ – Greenfield – May/June 1998
