Colin McPhee Composer in Two Worlds Press Reviews

Oja's study of the composer's life and work is careful, well-written, sympathetic yet objective. -- F. Goossen, Choice ... a strong and necessary argument for the reconsideration of McPhee's work as a composer. -- Larry Polansky, Ethnomusicology Carol Oja has recounted his story with outstanding thoroughness and sensitivity... McPhee's legacy is a small body of specialized work, creative and scholarly, that suggested new paths in the music of this century. It deserved--indeed, awaited--the full and well-balanced study Oja has given it. -- John Beckwith, American Music
