My choral hymn-anthem, We Trust in God Alone, is available from Augsburg Fortress publishing (Lutheran). A setting of text by contemporary Canadian poet, James Macdonnell, it is scored for SATB choir, organ and/or piano, with optional congregation in unison.

 

Veni, Sancte Spiritus  & In Your Mercy, Lord are available to order from  OCP (one of the largest publishers of liturgical music in the world).

• With claves, congas and very accessible a cappella SAB choir parts, Veni, Sancte Spiritus hits the mark when it comes to spirited and high-energy choral anthems.

• A tender song which reminds us of God's love for us, In Your Mercy, Lord  is scored for piano and guitar with flute obligato. SATB refrain with descant is lush but simple, and verses are SA. 

Many uses for these songs throughout the year!
