"Vocally Silent Night relies heavily on the commanding baritones of Craig Irvin (as the German Lieutenant Horstmayer), Gabriel Preisser (as the Scottish Lieutenant Gordon), and Liam Bonner (as the French Lieutenant Audebert). The interplay of these three talented singers - from tersely delivered formalities to the affectionate cordialities of unlikely friends - is endlessly compelling, their tonal synchronicity suggesting a private sympathy that runs deeper than the capricious ideologies of their clashing nations."

"Troy Cook's Palmer, Andrew Wilkowske's Ponchel and the tri-national trio of lieutenants (Liam Bonner, Craig Irvin, Gabriel Priesser) merit special praise and were especially notable."

"A conscientious and exceptional singer exhibiting a high level of preparation, musical sensitivity and attention to detail. His voice is a fuller cavalier baritone sound, possessing a distinctively warm and exciting timbre. A joy to work with."

"Gabriel Preisser sang and acted Tom with power and presence, growing from cocky wanderer to conscience-awakened crusader. True to novel Grapes brims with talent.”
Everett Evans, Houston Chronicle, April 6, 2009.
