“deeply passionate and etheral…strikingly original…unfathomable beauty…This is an important score in the continuing evolution and maturation of American motion picture music…rising to spiritual heights unheard since the glory days of Alfred Newman…a powerful testament to the undeniable truth of music’s power to elevate its visual counterpart to infinite grandeur and glory…” Steven Vertlieb

“From Start to finish McKenzie’s score washes over the listener in waves of beauty…It’s a firm candidate for score of the year: beautiful, moving and powerful, and proof that it’s not only Ennio Morricone who’s willing to put faith in soulful, spiritual film music. The Great Miracle will be very difficult for other scores to top in 2011.” – Sean Wilson
