Vocal Works

  • Standing Alone

    Click for playback Image of a 14 year old runaway hitchhiking at night. Sheet music
  • I Am Snow (Falling Gently)

    Click for playback A subtle reference to "Just-spring" by e. e. cummings. Sheet music
  • I'm Starting to Cry (Don't Know Why)

  • Children Sleeping Under Bridges (A Christmas Carol)

    Sheet Music Written in 2005 for a local choir. Many members threatened to quit if the director insisted they perform it. Some of my Christian friends were also scandalized, saying it is inappropriate to sing about poverty and the homeless at Christmas. Funny, I always thought that that is what Christmas is about.
