Review quote

From Ives to Berio, and Cowell to Libby Larsen, she has given an excellent summary of works by twentieth-century composers and the performance challenges they present...Mabry's book is a superb find for solo singer and choral conductor. It is highly recommended, as is her approach to twentieth-century vocal music. * Choral Journal *show more
