laudamus te

From Gentry Publications:

"This is a winner! The Latin words of praise enable this motet to be sung in concert and worship. The counterpoint is playful and canonic, making it easy to learn and a pleasure to sing. Small choirs and young voices will enjoy the classical-style lines and the joyful spirit of the piece."


Love Will Find Its Way

So many voices judge us—outside voices and even our own inner voices—can rip us apart. We all could use encouragement sometimes ... "You are worthy the way you are; there is nothing wrong with you!" Flute played by Patty Parrish. Live performance in Raleigh, NC.


Little Things

It's all the little things in love and life which make the greatest difference of all! Live performance in Durham, NC.


living faith

From Shawnee Press:

An expressive melody rises and falls prayerfully in this engaging paean of promise, securely carrying a message of hope ... The SAB voicing is deceiving; the anthem is rich and emotive, decorated by a helpful yet highly expressive piano accompaniment. Ending with quiet commitment, this piece would make a splendid epilogue to a sermon calling for a deeper walk of devotion.


Melody of Memories

A song about the power of memories and how they shape us throughout life. Set in the musical terrain of my Dad's birthplace and where he lived until adulthood. Recording of rehearsal in Raleigh, NC.


prepare the Way

From Hope Publishing:

A “jazzy number ... contagious in melody and words, and even has a hint of the spiritual, ‘Keep Your Lamps,’ in the middle. Choirs are sure to have a great time with this musical offering!”


Psalm 118: Alleluia, This Is the Day!

An energetic setting of Psalm 118 in a responsorial format for SATB choir with cantor/soloist, congregation and hand drum. This was selected for performance at the NPM Children's Choir Festival in St. Louis, MO and was also performed in the Southwestern Division Conference of ACDA. Published by MorningStar Music Publishers (also in large-print edition).


simple gifts

We trust in god alone

Available from Augsburg Fortress — See the score and listen to  We Trust in God Alone 

Published by Augsburg Fortress. From the publisher: “Brad Croushorn has created an instant classic in honor of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Featuring an optional assembly part, this work is a great way to get in the mindset of celebrating the Reformation and how it has shaped the Christian faith.” For SATB choir, organ &/or piano and assembly.


Veni, Sancte Spiritus

A vivacious setting of traditional Latin text with English verses in a call and response format. This is full of Latin-inspired percussive flair and will have you humming along in no time. The brief opening and closing chant-like sections provide a beautiful contrast. Full recording and choral octavo available from OCP Publications.


a Welcome Friend

Finding balance between work life and leisure time with loved ones always seems like an impossible task to achieve. Whatever form your weekend takes, it is often the most cherished time of the week. Live performance in Raleigh, NC.
