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 three Mass settings: congregational ordinaries written for all to sing!

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.
