Hugh Martin, Academy Award Winning Composer of "Meet Me in St. Louis," starring Judy Garland and directed by Vincent Minnelli

I have just returned, dear Angela, from a strange and fascinating country that I had never visited before. I have you to thank for the journey, and my passport was ENTER THE LIGHT.

There is no way to critique this accomplishment of yours without using the word "beautiful."

Your voice, your face, your form and your spirit are all beautiful. I have a feeling that your father was beautiful, too. There must be a great deal of him in ENTER THE LIGHT.

What an oasis your music is in this shake, rattle, and roll world we live in today. Every day I yearn for serenity and your lovely album is the answer to my prayer!

I won't pretend that it is a language I am comfortable with yet. But I love to learn new things, and, you, dear Angela, are a very new thing indeed! But a welcome thing, and one which enhances my life.

I love your musicians also. They give a new meaning to the word percussion. We are indoctrinated with the idea that the percussionist is supposed to knock his brains out and rev a sup to the point of insanity. Thank you, dear fellow friend of Judy Garland, for bringing some sanity into a mad world.

By the way, I knew Judy so well that I think it's safe to say I am sensitive to what she would have loved; I think she would love you a lot. So do I!

With the loving spirit,
Hugh Martin

"Tonight's singing attraction was not to be outdone by all this dazzle. Angela Fischetti sang music she has written and cleverly composed from mantras around the world including India and Africa. Her angelic voice expressed itself with joy and devotion. She sings at different venues around town." 


Michael DeMaria, Composer "The River"

Just a quick note to ... thank you for the awesome concert! What an inspiration! You not only have an elegant and powerful voice, but watching you surrender to the spirit and joy of the song was a true gift. . . .

Christophe Mouze of YOGA HOLIDAYS:

"Following in the wake of Krisha Das' success, and thanks to the ever increasing popularity of yoga, sanscrit devotional chanting is becoming a very popular genre. Angela's delightful voice serves it well. My 2 year-old son loved it." (He also lists Angela's CD in his Music Links page.)
