Hello, I’m so glad to share with you the world premiere of my Lacrimosa performed by the Italian choir Coro Vox Armonica Savigliano conducted by Dr. Sergio Daniele. Thank you for listening and to share around you this emotional premiere. Piano : Andrea Vigna-Taglianti. Strings : Ronan Rouxel.
It’s a piece written for mixed choir, piano & string orchestra. My Lacrimosa also exists in a version for mixed choir & piano.
Leon Dubinsky’s well known coal miners song was made popular by the Rankins. Stephen Smith’s arrangement has been performed all over North America. This crowd pleasing accessible version tugs at the heart strings of all those who see children as our hope for the future.
It’s 2021 and hopefully the turning of the clock reinvigorates a new hope in each one of us. We all put our faith and trust in something to push through the difficult times. The beautiful text in “The Storm is Passing Over” casts our eyes to the heavens till the morning light appears. Enjoy!
I hope everyone has had a wonderful, safe and healthy holiday season. Since we are at the beginning of the Winter season, I thought some of you might be interested in my setting of Robert Louis Stevenson’s picturesque poem entitled “Winter Time” for SSAA choir, two handbells and the sounds of wind and fire (generated by the performers). The work is scheduled for release by Pavane Music when things begin to return to normal. The performance is by the McMaster University Women’s Choir conducted by Tracy Wong. I also have an SATB version as well. For further info, please contact me at .

Now available for purchase – “The Lesson of the Lark,” written as a celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the ratification of Women’s Voting Right. This new multi-movement concert work composed for narrator, soprano and mezzo-soprano soloists, and chorus, contains a powerful message calling for gender equity. The work takes its inspiration from the language of Jazz – including elements of Swing, Blues, Bossa Nova, Gospel, Salsa, and improvisation.
The piece is composed for both SATB and SSA choral ensembles. (SATB and SSA versions may be combined for a collaborative performance.) All choral parts are written with accessibility in mind – with generous use of unison lines, canonic phrases, and triadic harmonies.
Accompaniment options include Jazz Orchestra (original version), Jazz Chamber Ensemble (available soon), Jazz Quartet, and Solo Piano.
