Reactions to the book:

“An amazing book!  . . . “I appreciate the breadth with which you have defined “Adventist musician,” including entries about Sunny Liu and John Thurber along with those about Virginia-Gene Rittenhouse and Herbert Blomstedt. It is a treasure trove of information about that wondrous and wide variety of people who have contributed to the world of Seventh-day Adventist music.  Dr. John McVay, President, Walla Walla University

 “The biographies are so well written!  I’ve been enjoying reading the few that I’ve sampled.  What a surprise to find my mother’s musical bio among them (Virginia Rittenhouse Fagal)!  I learned a few things from that one that I hadn’t known before.

“Thanks again for all the good work on these biographies.  Together they are a monumental resource for the church . . .

William Fagal, Associate Director, Ellen G. White Estate
