DURUFLE REQUIEM (Boston Festival Orchestra)

ST. MATTHEW PASSION (Carmel Bach Festival)

"The alto arias are extraordinarily lovely and beautifully sung by Cynthia      Munzer. 'Buss and Reu' was smoothly expressed, pure toned, and her description      of crying was unmistakable in its velvet richness. 'Ach nun ist mein Jesus      hin' displayed Miss Munzer's thrilling timbre and excellent vocal production.      'Erbarme dich' was inspirational and her fresh, emotion-laden tone was heart      stirring." - San Francisco Herald
(Carmel Bach Festival)

..."fine cantilena. . . vocally glittering lines and the final aria      was a dance-like procession and a joy to listen to." - Monterey News


"Her tone became mournful as Ms. Munzer's voice dipped deeper, almost      gutteral without losing its heavy smoothness." - Amarillo Times
(Carmel Bach Festival)
"Cheers for Cynthia Munzer whose alto has an organ-like quality and      she sings most beautifully." - San Francisco Chronicle
