I came expecting it to be good, but I wasn’t prepared to cry…and I don’t cry easily. I have never witnessed a performance of this caliber given all by volunteers in my life. It was truly remarkable.

What an awesome experience we had! You were incredible!…It was another high point in my career. If high points [were] like mountains, this one has to be in the Himalayas.

I love the music, and I love, especially, the Gospel approach to the choir. It’s the first choir, really, that I’ve really been in that has a true Gospel approach, which is wonderful.

The Chorale….is a true jewel of the Church.

We were overwhelmed. Not knowing what to expect, we were impressed beyond words. Since I am retired from ‘Christ the King Lutheran Church’, I did not have the opportunity to do a cantata as part of the passion, crucifixion and resurrection this year so being able to sit and be a part from a different perspective was both spiritually fulfilling and musically rewarding. What a great choir you have. Your soloists were outstanding, the orchestra was magnificent, the narrators were so professional and the work was so well done. Thank you again and again for inviting us.
