Reviews

"Rural Renaissance Festival " (Performance with archguitarist Peter Blanchette and the Virtual Consort) [Wheeler's] voice was a joy to hear something in her seems to resonate easily with the period, making the music not only exquisite but somehow authentic. Her devotion to expressing the full meaning of the songs was gratifying her stage savvy helped her get everything possible out of each song her ornamentation was superb. All this, together with her effective expressions and Blanchette's remarkable accompaniment, combined to captivate the audience, which more than once let out sighs of enjoyment. - Thomas W. Hutchinson, The Recorder, Greenfield, MA USA

[CD What Thing Is Love] "I enjoyed it immensely.Amy's is a lovely natural voice, suitably sexy for the sentiments,fine lute playing. it is a fascinating program, you can purchase single tracks on the internet but I'd rather get the whole CD: it's too good just to select a few tracks. highly recommended."
- Clifford Bartlett, Editor, Early Music Review

Excellently recorded, with varied acoustics and technical combinations, this is a very interesting CD, I strongly recommend it.-Percy Davidsson, Canseda AB, Sweden

"Scandinaviana" (Performance, Poland's National Philharmonic)once again [Wheeler] not only shows us that she can sing exquisitely and intelligently, with such expressive acting, but also that she knows precisely about what she is singing and how to command the stage.
