“Dr. Seelig takes eclecticism to new heights” – Grammy Magazine

“He raises singers from “the ranks of amateur choir to one receiving wide
recognition for excellent performances of appealing, fresh repertoire” – Fanfare Magazine

“Like many of Constantinides’ compositions, this one [had]… a clean, contemporary sound, while remaining very accessible. The orchestration was extremely skillfully done – another consistent feature of Constantinides’ music” – Composer USA

“Wood’s (Old Turtle) refreshing, spontaneous tale spotlights the rapport between a patient, apparently single father and his all-knowing child… Just the right blend of sassiness and sentiment”–Publishers Weekly
