NEW ALBUM: DIVERTIMENTI - a collection of 56 wildly diverse, original instrumental tracks, studio and live, spanning 1974 to 2018
THE EARTH IS SINGING
Recorded live in concert with Singapore's SYC Ensemble Singers conducted by Jennifer Tham. Includes personal favorites from my choral catalogue, from Mass and MyRose, SuiteRomantique and pieces from Gospels, all with SYC's uniquely ethereal soulfullness.
The premier performance of When Lilacs Last In The Dooryard Bloom'd is now up at YouTube (see below). Having not listened to this in over 10 years, I was surprised at how cohesive and intense this first unveiling was, even if I'd lift the choir volume and some tempos.. In any event, a newly timely piece
Work is well underway on a new Mass, but with a quite different theme and musical twist. Premier in Osaka, Sept. 2019. A first - "The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress" from the FairyTales album has reached over a million streams on Spotify.
Upcoming release: Singing - solo piano versions of choral and vocal writing.
