QUOTES

“I always look forward with anticipation when I know one of Lea’s compositions is to be played during our church service. Her music is always fresh, engaging, uplifting and fits so harmoniously into the thoughts expressed within each service. Always a joy.” --Penny Thompson, First Church of Christ Scientist, La Mesa, Music Chairman, La Mesa, California

“I like the piece! It’s lively, sounds significantly harder than it is, has an engaging/catchy rhythm and melody and a fun pedal line (again, not as hard as it might seem at first glance). The ostinatos will make it easy to learn and memorize.” --Pertaining to the organ piece “Orff Fun” --Leslie Wolf Robb, past Regional Councilor, American Guild of Organist La Jolla, California

“A perfect programmatic marriage of voice and accompaniment. We are called to be Angel and Star in this new Christmas classic.” For “Angel and Star” --Patricia Cannon Childs, soprano, T.V. personality, PANORAMA, Nashville, TN
