In 1971, Ms. Pryce made a historic achievement by becoming the first
female member of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, thus paving the way for
sweeping changes in orchestras across Europe as they began to appoint
women for the first time. Following this landmark accomplishment, Ms.
Pryce received numerous distinguished appointments with many world-class
orchestras, including the English Sinfonia (Principal bass), English
National Orchestra (Sub-principal bass), Welsh National Opera Orchestra,
BBC Scottish Symphony, Festival Ballet, Liverpool Philharmonic, and the
Bejart Ballet. In these and other ensembles, Ms. Pryce has played under
the direction of some of the greatest musicians of the twentieth century,
such as Pierre Boulez, Rudolph Kempe, Reginald Goodall, Sir Colin Davis,
Mark Elder, Sir Andrew Davis, James Lockhart, James Levine and Sir Charles
Groves. It is this extensive experience as an "A-list" world-class
performer that gives Ms. Pryce the ability to notate and prepare
sophisticated musical scores not only with an impeccable eye for every
musical detail, but with an extraordinary breadth of understanding that is
unique among music copyists, arrangers, orchestrators and notators.
It has been a great honor to have the opportunity to work with Ms. Pryce
on a number of projects over the past two years. I can confirm that she is a
world-class expert and that her skills as a music notation expert are truly

|During the past year, Alison Pryce has
copied two of my compositions for large chamber ensemble. Each of the pieces
involves a mixture of traditional metric notation and a relatively
unorthodox use of brackets, boxes, arrows, graphic patterns, noteheads
without stems and stems without pitches. Ms. Pryce handled all of this with
great accuracy, timeliness, patience and humor. She understands the musical
implications of my notational requests, and on a number of occasions pointed
out inconsistencies I had overlooked or suggestions (very wise ones!) for
re-notating certain passages. It was a joy to work with her, and I hope I'll
have the opportunity to engage her services again.
