[Greece] Vrathyni, 1955
"[Singing Earth] fascinated the
audience ... Based on a poem by the American poet, Carl Sandburg, Miss
Warren's composition is characterized by a noble romanticism and
sensibility, and reveals a serious composer who possesses all the
secrets of technique."
"Those listeners [to Cambria
Records' CDs of Warren's music] will be well-rewarded with an
unexpectedly gratifying revelation of a distinguished and seasoned
voice whose time perhaps has finally arrived."
Charleston Gazette, 1955
"['Along the Western Shore'] is
attractive mood music that is pleasantly listenable. ... The writing
reveals fine craftsmanship ... The suite is something to be heard
because of its general warmth and poetic imagery."
Corvallis, Oregon, 1979
" 'Good Morning, America!' for
full orchestra, chorus and narrator, climaxed the concert and after
the performance the audience gave the composer a standing ovation. It
is rich, descriptive music with pleasant melodies that support the
[Carl] Sandburg text well... It's good contemporary music ... and was
well performed. It deserves to be heard again and again."

"...In her songs [Warren] strikes a

Los Angeles Examiner, 1952
"['Singing Earth'] has
distinctive thematic material, rich and often bold harmony and glowing
orchestration. It is particularly lovely in a middle episode in which
the voice is cradled in a gently rocking orchestral movement, and in
its valiant finale."
Angeles Times, 1938
" 'Snow Toward Evening' by the
gifted Los Angeles composer, Elinor Remick Warren could have been
written expressly for this artist [Kirsten Flagstad], so well did it
suit her voice and her temperament. The high, sustained melody is
poetic, chaste, clear in its serenity. The accompaniment supports it
with color and a rich harmonic fabric."
