“…winsome melodies and sophisticated harmonies…”

–Steve Smith, The New York Times, March 26, 2012

“With music set to a vivid and vaguely Victorian text by Nathaniel Bellows, Snider knows how to expertly play with nostalgia and memory, layering remembrances with contrasting rhythms and lines that collide and divide with an affable ebb and flow.”

–Olivia Giovetti, WQXR, Operavore, March 26, 2012

“…a sensitive and affective setting of a poem by Nathaniel Bellows—a skillful composition built out of an ostinato and bright diatonic chords.”

The Brooklyn Rail, May 5, 2012
