"Our University ensamble has played many, many of Ticheli's pieces and they are some of the most moving, touching pieces to listen to. The recording on this CD is good and almost captures the true emotion you get from listening to Ticheli live."

"Only four stars because I have only heard one song. Alone, this version of Amazing Grace deserves a high rating. It brings tears to my eyes. I am a high school sophomore and I'm principal flute. I'm very grateful that my band director paid the $100 for the score."
