"I love this song. In my cantate group I have so much fun performing this great piece of music."
review by: Gabby J, lynchburg, va - Cantate

"Andrew Miller's "If Music Be the Food of Love" is one of the best pieces I have ever found for my Freshman Mixed Choir to sing. It is the perfect combination of accessibility and beauty. My young singers have enjoyed learning this piece, because they were able to find immediate success with some parts of the song, but have been challenged by other parts. The way Andrew wrote this piece allows even a younger more inexperienced group to experience some beautiful harmonies not found in many pieces of music written for this age group, as the dissonances are written with very accessible voice leading. I highly recommend this piece for choirs of all levels and abilities, as the beautiful melody and harmonies will be enjoyed by all of your singers!"

"My choir loves singing Andrew Miller's "If Music Be the Food of Love." It has been an enjoyment to work on a piece of music that my students throughly enjoy singing. It is both harmonically and rhythmically challenging. The harmonies are breathtaking. I overhear my students singing it in the hallways between classes. This is a great piece for any choir."

"Andrew Miller wrote this piece for our small school's 7-12 choir. Finding pieces that can fit a group of such a wide range of ages and skills levels in difficult. This piece is a rare one that fit the bill and appealed to all the singers as well. I particularly enjoyed hearing the track team members who were also in choir singing this piece as they walked to the weight room each day after school. I believe this to be a fine piece for a high school or even a good junior high choir. So many pieces for this age group rely on a faster and more rhythmical style to hold appeal for modern students and audiences. It was so special to work on a piece that focused on lush harmonies and beautiful melodies. "
review by: Trudy Fraase Wolf, Zeeland, ND - Zeeland 7-12 Choir

"Andrew Miller's, "If Music Be the Food of Love" is a fresh take on the on the familiar text. With beautiful piano and violin accompaniment which expertly compliments the flowing choral lines, this piece is great for any high school choir. Mr. Miller's professional group, FROM AGE TO AGE came to my small school in St. Clair MN and worked with my choir students on this piece, which soon became an all time favorite of the choir. Highly recommended and very accessible for any high school group!"
