Rod Cameron, OSA's Commendation for

                       Red Land Songs

 

Dear 'CJ' and Maria, …The very beautiful Red Land Songs have contributed richly to my ministry, especially when I give the six day retreats and use the songs in my presentations.  I have given retreats based on the Dreaming, at Canberra and Ormiston (Brisbane).  In 2001, I will go to Adelaide.  At St Joseph’s House of Hospitality and Prayer I will spend a week.  The Dreaming is having a powerful appeal.  (Thank you) for your priceless assistance.  God bless.  Sincerely, Rod (3/4/2000)

 

Some Other Testimonials

 

Dear Maria, You’d better frame this card for I rarely put pen to paper; a card from me is unique!  We are on holidays at present so I’ve been trying to catch up on study.  I have such poor motivation I need to play music that is inspirational to crank up the ol’ brain.  This week I’ve been playing Red Land Songs.  I do appreciate your talent.  I’ve been so inspired that I decided to write to tell you how much I enjoy the aura you bring to the lyrics. … What a marvellous gift you are to us, Maria!  Paul

 

Dear Maria Rosa, Could we be sent a copy of the tape Red Land Songs?  We like to sing at XY College and your songs sound good.  I certainly want to heighten awareness of Aboriginal realities.  Tye

 

Dearest Maria, I hope I can make music as beautifully as you do and put into it my being and soul as you do in your music, the music of a whole people and land.  Jue

 

The music is a joy to listen to – it rinses and cleanses the soul.  I am welcomed by the music that she sings.  James

 

Thank you so much for your tape Maria.  We listened to it this weekend and very much enjoyed it.  (My beloved other half) was commenting that it is in a Pentatonic style (which he said was without the semitones) – to me it sounded very “Irish” in its rendering.  Whatever it was very beautiful and thank you for letting us share it.  Sue (4/7/1994)
