"Terra Verde in musical terms signifies a restoration of tradition at the close of a musically chaotic century. It has a regressive dynamic to it as well as a progressive one. The return to the use of elements found in classic and romantic music reflects a healthy respect for tradition, a bridge to the classic. Its progressive dynamic is expressed by its intent to lead people to a higher plateau of understanding, a cultivation of sensibility, both in music and in life." -- Frank French

"Music is the most intimate, the most comforting, the most trusting, the most thorough of all creative languages. So if art is ultimately about touching the most remote regions of the human psyche, music is very well equipped to do that." -- David Thomas Roberts

"It's not just communication, it's communion: merging with another's soul." -- Scott Kirby
