Sacred Music

Music for Liturgy, Prayer, and Worship

 

Thank you for your interest in my sacred and liturgical music.  It is inspired and created out of a love for God and God’s people. My hope is that this music can be understood as less an act of self-expression and more an act of expressing this deep, abiding love among all people with their God. While most of these pieces were composed for specific use within the Roman Catholic liturgy, you will find many may be useful in other Christian traditions as well, with a number of them potentially beautiful additions to a choir’s concert repertoire. Many of the pieces here are also designed to be adaptable to almost any parish’s size or musical resources. Please contact me for full scores if anything here interests you, or if you are interested in commissioning a new work.
