Inspiring Words by Alice Parker, from the Melodious Accord newsletter, July 2002
"No other art demands so persuasively that we dwell in this moment, right here, where space crosses time, in order to create something fleeting that we cannot make alone. Here is a positive addiction -- one that brings blessings rather than disease, and one that makes us appreciate and value those with whom and for whom we sing. We are most wonderfully human when we sing together."
