The Conversion of Saul by Z. Randall Stroope, … opens with rapid chant, gradually subdued into an air of mystery, symbolizing the protagonist’s journey from persecutor to Christian evangelist. Unorthodox in meter and harmonic structure, Stroope’s score is strikingly effective.    (Lawrence Budmen, South Florida Classical Review)

It was a special pleasure to hear an early Spanish love song as radiantly arranged by Z. Randall Stroope; “Amor de mi Alma” proved virtually idyllic as sung on this occasion. (John W. Lambert,  CVNC- On-line Arts Journal of North Carolina,  May 22, 2016)
