Compositions

As a Catholic church musician, most of my compositions are practical: sacred music written to be used at Mass by parish cantors and choirs. See especially my two Mass settings: congregational ordinaries written for all to sing!

Phrygian Mass in Honor of St. David the King (congregational Mass setting)

Dorian Mass in Honor of St. John of the Cross (congregational Mass setting)

O Salutaris Hostia (plainchant)


Missa Simplex No. 1 for children’s/adult choir, SAB
I wrote this Mass for my children’s choir to sing the top part with a skilled choir underneath, to challenge them to sing in simple, polyphonic harmony. I did not write a Gloria, Creed, or Memorial Acclamation as I plan on filling in those parts with other music.

Ave Verum Corpus – motet for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
