I try to write sacred choral music that is both challenging and accessible. There is often an element in a choral piece that might challenge a choir and make the music more interesting, such as rhythm in Come, Let Us Eat (GIA), cross-relations in Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross (Augsburg Fortress), or something more subjective like “sensuality” in All for Christ (Concordia).
All of my music is more-or-less conservative in regards to harmony (it is “tonal”). I appreciate modalism and Renaissance polyphony, as well as early twentieth-century American and British music. Above all, I try to write music of high quality that will be useful to musicians and enjoyed by audiences.
