I have always loved text setting and especially enjoy working with living poets (though I’ve found Shakespeare and Emily Dickinson work just fine as well).
A category with a wide variety of instrumental and vocal combinations for large ensembles.
Where I’ve done some of my best work, especially, though not exclusively, in small ensembles that include string quartet.
A relatively new and rapidly expanding area that I’ve begun exploring more the past few years.
I have written music for weddings of friends and family, including my two oldest daughters, and I know that having music composed especially for the couple helps make the occasion even more memorable.
I've had a lot of fun exploring this area, with solo pieces and small ensembles for the beginner as the creative result.
This CD contains choral and vocal music composed over two decades, from Our Wish This Year is Peace (1992) to two works composed especially for the concerts in 2011 during which the CD was recorded, Summer for unaccompanied chorus and Trajectory of Flight for mezzo-soprano and strings.
