"This is the most glorious piece of music I have ever heard. These young women performed it beautifully. I play it continuously and never tire of it. I’m in awe of the composer’s genius and the talent of the conductor and the young choristers. It is pure joy! Marion R. Stewart"

"Gorgeous, haunting piece I discovered during the St. Olaf Choir Special in Norway this year. My favorite, by far, during this exquisite concert. Although I am not a musician, I appreciate the talent, sophistication and expertise of this sensitive young composer who has captivated me. I listen over and over to this lullaby, this Cradle Hymn and cannot seem to stop. How I would have loved to been at that concert. It was just superb."

"The most beautiful choral piece I've ever heard! Brings tears of joy to my 70-year-old eyes! Each listening yields an additional quality to appreciate: of the composer's creative genius, the arranger's sensitivity to voice and orchestral detail, the performers' grasp of the feeling that Kim Andre Arnesen must have felt as he wrote it. It's inspiring to know that the most gifted composers did not all die with Gregorian Chant. A belated thank you to Isaac Watts, and contemporary thanks to all those who brought this music to the Internet! "

"This has to be on the top ten of the most beautiful pieces that I've ever heard! Totally perfect for that girls choir in Norway that produced a masterful performance. BRAVO!!!"
