I was so fortunate to have had them in my life for a good many years. I performed with John and Sooz more times than I could possibly count.

I had the good fortune to communicate with John via email over the last number of months regarding our efforts to Revive the Madrigal Dinners at Indiana University-Bloomington. John and Susie were integral parts of the evolution of this tradition at IU. His insight and suggestions have been invaluable to our efforts. He will be sorely missed.

We are saddened to hear that John Howell passed away. The time that we shared with many others in the New Virginians, John Howell Singers and the Studio Singers cannot be measured or equaled. We had some amazing opportunities that many may never experience. I am grateful for the time we shared and the friends we made because of our mutual love of music. May God bless the Howell family and give them peace and comfort at this difficult time. Our prayers are with all of you.

I feel truly honored that both my son and I were able to learn the art of early music under John's direction. He has been a great mentor and friend for 30 years. We shall do our best to continue to share what he taught us with coming generations.
