"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

Glimmering Girl

And maybe I shall go with you, my glimmering girl
To the land of Glyn, to the land of Myrrh
Where cats wear gleaming fine faces and purple fur
And the daisies bend down singing lowly: murr, murr

And maybe we shall go there together my girl
Decked out in moth's wings and juniper fur
To the opera in the land of Myrrh
The one beyond reckon beyond call and ken
That harks back when

And maybe we shall go there my glimmering girl
In summertime, in bumblebee time

And maybe we shall go there, my glimmering, glimmering, girl

 

- Sue Carroll Moore, ASCAP
