I found my way to your choral works because I was looking for high-quality, interesting music suitable for our scaled-down size and UU theology. I’ve been completely delighted by getting to know your catalogue on so many levels! I also feel a great deal of gratitude for the affordability of your choral music and the way your digital download platform works.

The Amidon choral arrangements have that effortless, inevitable quality of great music: you feel like they have always been there, and could not have been written any other way.
–Dr. Lawrence Siegel – composer, Westmoreland, New Hampshire
Peter and Mary Alice Amidon provide an invaluable source of beautiful songs and arrangements. Their choice of material is delightful. Some they write, but they also find hidden gems. Their songs and arrangements are a joy to sing, uplifting and profound.

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 360¬∫ Approach” (Berklee Press, Hal Leonard, 2014).
Their voices of compassion and healing speak to today’s world.
– Nick Page – songleader, composer, conductor and author
They include only the best, most deeply meaningful songs, and range across many traditions. Mary Alice is a delightful song writer, and Peter employs a variety of styles in his arrangements so each song emerges as the gem it is. I highly recommend both these books – for choral singers, for church musicians, for conductors, and for singers of all stripes and hues.
