Please be sure to browse my compositions by clicking the button above my biography. Scores are available for purchase.  When you purchase one of my compositions, you will receive a PDF document and permission to make unlimited copies for you and your ensemble – much cheaper than purchasing a set of octavos for your choir!
This summer, I’ll be taking St. Martin’s choir on a pilgrimage to the UK!  We’ll be the choir-in-residence at Exeter Cathedral, and also sing at St. Martin-in-the-Fields, London.
