SATB: with Horn

Thank you for your extensive and thoughtful responses.
Several writers asked for a compilation.

Many people suggested Paul Basler and James Mulholland in general; some
specific titles were also suggested. I always marvel at the collective
wisdom of this group

mentioned. Foolish me!

scored for french horn and choir.
