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 just been released by Augsburg Fortress publishing (Lutheran). This is a setting of a text by contemporary Canadian poet, James Macdonnell. It is scored for SATB choir with descant, congregation, organ and piano. Listen and purchase here.
• 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!
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!"
