"Wow, wow, and wow. Great final piece, Naomi. Beautiful, lyrical, interesting dissonance and consonance choices. bravo." - Chris Ludwa, Artistic Director of the Indianapolis Arts Chorale

"I wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your music. I loved your requiem for your mother (the first movement totally got me). I also really liked Spring Song." - Member of FWeeter, a Bay Area (CA) Women's Chorus.

"Your scores just arrived and look unusually interesting... there's so much trite garbage out there, and your stuff is a refreshing alternative with a clear stamp of substance. I'm looking forward to working through them. "
- Jonathan Miller
Director, Chicago A Cappella

From those who have experienced Mater in Memoriam as performers, audience or conductors:

"As I sat and wept listening to "Second Chance," wondering how long I'd have my mother, I decided that some quality time with her was long overdue. My Second Chance is now." Audience

"I thought this was a work for this time. The orchestra and parts moved us to settings of different scenarios, different emotions that we set forth in song.. . . it was really a blend of opera and requiem." Performer

"If I could have written a piece half as good as Mater in Memoriam, I'd have been over the moon" - Julie Sibson, Performer and composer.
