The Journal of the Association of Anglican Musician Headline: A Plum from Pro Organo. “Talk about programming! Ms. Keiser has created a disc based upon spiritually related, yet stylistically contrasted dualities which originally germinated with the recital program chosen for the dedication of the Christ Church Cathedral organ in Indianapolis. Her rendition of Mulet’s Carillon Sortie is not just a curtain raiser but a heaven raiser. The tempo, which makes or breaks a performance of this piece, is just right … buy this CD now and possess it!” – G. Donald Kaye

The Living Church “The inclusion of many of today’s composers is one of this collection’s delights. Hearing and performing works of musicians one can really meet and converse with is a great joy, and gives hope to those who fear for the future of serious music.” – Patricia Nakamura
