These past couple of years has been very busy, with 6 new choral works completed and 22 orchestral pieces re-arranged for chamber orchestra and treble chorus. "Three Olde English Rhymes" (unison treble with piano) is now available from Alliance Music.
Elektra! Women's Choir premiered "To Timarion" as part of their 30th Anniversary celebration at the Chan Center in Vancouver. Congratulations Morna and Elektra! This piece is being published in the Elektra Women's Choir Series at Cypress Choral Music Publishing in 2020.
I was also fortunate to recently receive the Diane Loomer Award for Choral Composition from Choral Canada, with a premiere of "Will You Fare On, My Song?" at Podium in St. John's, Newfoundland.
DaCapo Chamber Choir has released their recording of "Song of Invocation" on their latest CD, NewWorks. It is beautifully rendered. Thank-you Leonard and DaCapo singers.
Alliance has also released two new works for unison (opt. 2-part) choir - "The Green Month" and "My Serenade".
"Fireweed" - commissioned by the Fireweed Children's Chorus of Yellowknife, NWT through Choral Canada, has now been delivered. Thank-you Dana and Elizabeth for selecting me to be part of this very special project.
Cypress Music has purchased the Kelman Hall catalogue and recently re-published Hush (A Lullaby). There is also a lovely recording by the Inter-Mennonite Children's Choir there as well.
These last months in particular have been fruitful - arrangements/orchestrations for CISMF (Thank-You for the Music - ABBA) and the Oakville Children's Choir (What the World Needs Now - Bacharach), while waiting in the wings, Quittez Pasteurs (trad. French carol) and The Seal Lullaby (Whitacre). Continuing my commitment to unison song, I have also finished a new trio of Three(more) Olde English Rhymes, The Hours (in the early 20th Century American Song style) and also variations on Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star using Mozart's own variations as an accompanial base.
