I did not have the honor of taking a class with Paul, but his presence was such that I (a pianist and singer) knew who HE was... and remember the fondness many of his students had for him. sending condolences (at this very late date) to his family

Condolences. He was really influential to me. Sat me down at McDonalds and discussed my viola perf degree. Counterpoint class with him was just a treasure. I really really liked him. He was an example of what it's all about. May he rest in peace and God grant his family peace and comfort.

I had Mr. Abel for several classes in graduate school, and he was an amazing teacher. I marveled at seeing him write 3- and 4-voice canons in 16th-Century Counterpoint, but my favorite class was 18th-century Counterpoint--a class I have now taught for over 35 years. I still refer to "Abel's Law" when teaching fugue. He was on my doctoral committee, too. What a legacy he leaves his family as well as his students. May the Lord give you grace, mercy, and peace during this time of sorrow.

Dear Abel Family,
Paul Abel will always remain in my memory as a fine teacher, but most of all as one who truly cared for me. The feeling was mutual and I will always be grateful to have known and studied with him. My deepest condolences to all of his family.
