WORKS FOR SOLO VOICE
If you are interested in purchasing a piece or commissioning a new work, contact me! Perusal scores are available upon request. In many cases, I am happy to adjust pieces to better fit a particular range as needed.
HOW CAN I KEEP FROM SINGING?
Solo Voice and Organ, 3'00"
This arrangement of an early American folksong is suitable for a prelude or anthem. It premiered on May 24, 2020, by soprano Amy Broadbent and Thomas Sheehan, organist, at the Washington National Cathedral during the Covid-19 pandemic, for a socially-distant webcast service honoring Memorial Day (click to listen).
MY LADY SWEET, ARISE!
Solo Tenor (or Soprano) and Keyboard, 2'20"
With a nod to the famous Ave Maria by Bach/Gounod, My Lady Sweet, Arise! is a contrafact based on "Les Barricades Mystérieuses" from François Couperin's Ordre 6ème de clavecin, published in 1717. The poetic text is from Shakespeare's Cymbeline. Effective with either piano or harpsichord, the piece's simple line lends itself well to baroque-style ornamentation (highly encouraged!). Written for Matthew Hill in 2021.
