Written in celebration of the birth of my niece, this is my first composition written for bell choir. The bell choir is a Yamaha DX-11 F.M. synthesizer.

I like the theme music to the PBS/BBC mystery series Midsomer Murders with its use of a Theramin. So much so that it inspired me to purchase a Theramin and try my hand recording my version of it. The first thing I learned is, while the Theramin…

When I was around three years old I first realized I was hearing music in my head, the sounds of which I could manipulate. I thought I was hearing the voices of an Angel choir singing with me. This is that tune, as best I can remember so many…

I recorded this song a couple of years ago in a church. It was raining and I felt a bit blue at the time. I only had a zoom h1 recorder, a metronome and headphones at the time. So I couldn't really play over what I recorded previously. But…

A 1990 experiment for organ. I was up late one night, nearing the finish of composing this for my father, when I was interrupted by a telephone call telling me he had passed away. Like many of my compositions this one starts out slow and reflective…

Here is a lesser known, very early, Christian hymn based on the Greek text “Prayer of the Cherubic Hymn” in the Liturgy of St. James. It seems to have been created by Cyril of Jerusalem c. 347. I recorded this version many years ago using a Tascam…

A duet for piano and upright bass. I had composed and recorded this about ten years ago; given the current situation, seems like a good time to release it. One of these days I’ll figure out how to adequately record the upright bass; it’s again…

I’ve always liked Isaac Watt’s (1674 – 1748) hymn “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross,” but have thought the tune, a Gregorian chant, doesn’t adequately emphasize the words. It occurred to me that it might work well with a blues rhythm and I…

A spoof salute to Nextel ...or is it a spoof of country music? The lyrics might be too much of an inside joke unless one has worked for Sprint-Nextel, particularly in their Engineering department. Sadly, Nextel iDEN is scheduled to be dismantled…
