Here are more comments about the Amidons’ “Twenty-five Anthems for Interfaith & Community Choirs”
Peter’s work is artistry at the highest level: not only a gift to singers in a wide variety of settings, but also a model worthy of study by songwriters and composers in any tradition.
-Mark Simos, Songwriter; Associate Professor, Songwriting, Berklee College of Music; Author of Songwriting Strategies: A 360º Approach (Berklee Press, Hal Leonard, 2014).
We love the Amidon’s music, which become choir favorites almost as fast as we learn them.
–Lila M Farrar, Music Director, Brookfield (MA) Unitarian Universalist Church
I can’t speak highly enough of (Peter Amidon’s) arrangements which really work well in small congregations and for small choirs.
-Steve Finner, Director of Music, Unitarian Universalist Church of St. Johnsbury VT
Your “Twenty-five Anthems” collection is as good as I expected – songs with deep meaning, arranged so well and so simply that they practically sing themselves. I’ll probably use all twenty-five if I stay at this job long enough!
-Benjie Messer, Music Director, Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Phoenix, Arizona.
