- So many times, a particular composer only excels in writing one style of music. Koerts consistently demonstrates skill in performing, writing, and arranging in a variety of styles. I appreciate the mixture of the energetic and the contemplative, of the traditional and the new, of the simplistic and the grandiose. I have purchased Koerts' choral pieces, piano solos, and recordings, and I have always felt as though my money was well spent.
- When I'm looking for a fresh arrangement of an old hymn, I check all my James Koerts books and PDFs first hoping I'll find the perfect fit for a service and I usually do. I was going to name a favorite but I just couldn't as there are too many.
- I am a piano teacher and have used your arrangements for my students. Many of your arrangements are suitable for the intermediate level students and they love them.
- I enjoy playing the songs to de-stress after a hectic day of homeschooling. Also they challenge me to think outside the traditional box of hymn playing when I do congregational playing.
- One word to describe James music is "Refreshing." The songs and arrangements always seem to calm and uplift my spirit. He is careful to allow the text to dominate and be enhanced by the musical score.
- You use fresh sounds in your writing. Your arrangements have clean melody lines, but they aren't too simple. There's rhythmic interest and some really great chord progressions that are fresh sounding.
