MESSIAH (Denver Symphony)

"Cynthia Munzer was an artist of imposing quality, a technically accomplished mezzo who made the 'He Was Despised' aria a moment of supremely affecting expression." - Denver Post

BACH MAGNIFICAT (Minnesota Chorale)

"Alto Cynthia Munzer used her wide range and compelling tone to fine effect throughout." - Minneapolis Tribune

CANTATA 146 (Minnesota Bach Society)

"Mezzo-Soprano Cynthia Munzer, the featured soloist, sang her two arias beautifully, with great warmth of tone and understated virtuosity." - St. Paul Dispatch

DURUFLE REQUIEM (Boston Festival Orchestra)

"When Ms. Munzer sang the 'Pie Jesu' her voice soared and dripped with emotion. 'Lord, all pitying, grant them Thine eternal rest.' Her plea would melt the coldest God." - Westerly Sun

MISSA PROFANA (Zimmermann)

"The outstanding soloist of the evening was mezzo Cynthia Munzer." - Frankfurter Allgemeine

MAHLER SYMPHONY NO. 3 (Los Angeles Philharmonic)

"Mezzo-Soprano Cynthia Munzer revealed a rich, attractive and expressive instrument." - Los Angeles Times

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

ALEXANDER NEVSKY

"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
