ASTONISHING SENSE OF BEING TAKEN OVER BY SOMETHING FAR GREATER THAN ME - CD reviews 
 “an emotional chisel… sonically expressing something that is inexpressible, and ultimately beyond mere words or music.” —Mark Parlett, eContact
• “… primal, cathartic… its frenetic sounds will certainly get your heart racing in short order. All [tracks] are tremendously powerful…” —George Zahora, splendidezine
• “a tour de force in both composition and subject… sumptuous and dynamic sound textures throughout.” —Anna Rubin, Computer Music Journal

Alleluia - a New Werk - Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hill St., Wellington May 2009 - Pepe Becker’s Baroque Voices Ensemble

Susan Frykberg’s all-male-voice setting of words from Dante’s Paradiso........ was very much in traditional chant-style, with an exotic Eastern flavour, the basses delivering a cantor-like opening and the tenors taking up the thread with closely-worked repetitions...  It all fitted in beautifully with the concert’s overall conception. Peter Mechen 


REVIEW OF NEW WORK 'SUFFERING' ACMC 2011
“ The rest of the concert consisted of …………..  Suffering, a ritual piece by Susan Frykberg, from Whanganui, which featured gorgeous sounds and ritual actions by two actors, including pouring water, crucifixion, embracing, and reciting words.  Frykberg's very enjoyable piece combined elaborate sounds with sometimes obvious, sometimes obscure theological imagery. The juxtaposition struck me as both moving and strange, a combination I hadn't experienced before, and one I found most inviting.Warren Burt
