“A Maiden's Hymn by Jessica Lang was a thoughtful work about death, about how it can be cruel, about how it can be comforting... At curtain call, I was surprised to see a youthful Jessica Lang take her bows. A young woman wise beyond her years, it would seem.”
“Jessica Lang's fiery choreography made intricate, energetic use of Franz Schubert's music”
- Jennifer E. Wesnousky, exploredance.com, April 09, 2005
“... of particular note is the world premiere of A Maiden's Hymn, Jessica Lang's solemnly beautiful memorial to a late friend. The result of the choreographer's innate musicality is a work that is more impressionistic than literal.”
