God Who Touches Earth with Beauty

Mixed Chorus and Organ

This anthem is a setting of an early 20th Century hymn text. It utilizes metaphors in nature to describe a life of good character and is suitable for worship. It is free of gender specific language, and therefore speaks to all people of good will. The music is somewhat reminiscent of early 20th Century church music in that it has a comely melody and an organ accompaniment that is somewhat orchestral in concept. It has been sung many times and choirs seem to enjoy it. It is also available for an accompaniment of strings, clarinet and organ. Contact the composer for parts and score. They will be sent as PDFs at no charge.

    A short, rhythmically intense piece for Easter setting forth St. Paul’s words from the Epistle to the Romans (6:8-11). 2-part harmony, with octave doubling in the final alleluias, gives simplicity and clarity that further enhances the text, while making the piece easy to learn and effective for even the smallest choir.

    This energetic setting of Gloria in excelsis Deo, from the Latin Mass, opens with rhythmic patterns that enhance the text. Midway through, the chorus softly occults between two simple chords under an alto then baritone soloists. The opening patterns return before a fugal section at the text “cum santo spiritu.” The final Amen is another […]

    A simple homophonic setting based on liturgical chanting in the Russian tradition. The concluding acclamation “For Thine is the kingdom” is omitted here, making it suitable for use in services where it is separated from the main text by a prayer as in the Western Church, or chanted by the presiding clergy as in the […]
