Reviews of PraiseMaker...

"[PraiseMaker] is homophonic but uses that simplicity as a virtue, building up a raw and concentrated spiritual intensity, with flashes of rage. Singleton’s music here makes a potent impact from a limited palette."– Pierre Ruhe, Atlanta Journal Constitution

"The real choral winner is Alvin Singleton’s PraiseMaker, a piece of extraordinary depth and emotion. The work intends on being a universal secular celebration of accomplishments and learning. This it indeed does, and I found it enthralling from first to last…"– Steven Ritter, audiophileaudition.com
