'Another fine volume, striking in its diversity of styles and approaches.  All the contents extremely worthwhile.  It's not often that anthologies maintain this level of excellence.  Many congratulations on curating such a rich collection, and for your very high editorial standards. You are doing a great job not only for the cause of women composers but for the repertory of sacred vocal music, period'.
