"The good news was the score by Cope and the performance of it by Ms. Burrs and the instrumentalists drawn from the UR student body and community. It was most moving. "Cradle Falling" unquestionably is a modern masterpiece."

--Francis Church, Richmond News Leader, December 1, 1989

"Her haunting incantation of "White Snow Falling" was a supreme dramatic moment, punctuated by the captivating beat of drums. With the gong and trombone accompanying the circle of flashing lights, one definitely felt this was a close encounter...this performance had to be the artistic zenith for UR's instrumentalists."

--John McKay, Richmond Times-Dispatch, December 1, 1989
