I am a composer of liturgical music for both Roman Catholic and Protestant congregations, with over 400 compositions published by GIA, Augsburg Fortress and other publishers. For the past 25 years I have presented workshops and concerts across North America and in Europe, the Pacific Rim, Asia and Central America for church musicians and anyone interested in the renewal of worship.
Because I manage this website on my own (updating whenever I have time), I cannot include sound files (MP3's) here. However, my publisher, GIA, has short musical clips of many of my songs available.
