Recent & Forthcoming Publications 

 

Prepare the Way (an exciting new Advent choral piece) in the 2018 Fall release of Hope Publishing Company. In a gospel style with lots of sung dialog between voices, light percussion and a fun piano part!

 

My choral hymn-anthem, We Trust in God Alone, has recently been released by 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. Listen and purchase here.

 

Veni, Sancte Spiritus  and In Your Mercy, Lord are both now available to order from  OCP (Oregon Catholic Press, 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. (Recording coming soon!)

Many uses for these songs throughout the year!

 

Recent Publication —  Psalm 118: Alleluia, This Is the Day!  is available from MorningStar Music Publishers.

From the publisher: "This anthem is fitting for almost any worship occasion, particularly throughout the Easter season. In a responsorial format, the refrain of "Alleluias" will quickly get in your ear and rouse the voices of your congregation to sound forth a stream of Alleluias!"
