Some excerpts from the libretto:

Sinfonisches Blasorchester Ried (SBO), the ensemble that recorded Chapter 21 in 3.3 days is comprised of Musicians ranging in ages from 9-73. Yes... nine. Keep that in mind while listening. There is no price for Integrity, or Giving... or Heart. If one is fortunate, Musicians like SBO-Ried take time from their holidays, and offer something that no fee can compensate. To Karl Geroldinger and the fine Musicians of SBO-Ried... thank you for all you have done since we first met in 2003. Thank you for giving so much of yourselves as together we pay homage to lofty Ideals and great Souls. Godspeed! S

“Since we met Stephen Melillo for the first time 8 years ago my orchestra and me are inspired by his emotional music touching the hearts. We played some of his great pieces in our concerts and felt the power of his music occupying us and our audience in an involving manner. You cannot play Steve’s music without being involved with heart and soul - and You must not do it, if You just want to play pieces for the background. Music from Stephen Melillo is like an earthquake and a prayer in equal time.” Karl Geroldinger, Conductor, SBO-RIED
