Great news! Walton Music will be releasing several new works in my series this spring and in the fall. Spring releases include my Light from Above and Daniel KnaggsPsalm 117, an exciting and uplifting work composed for the choir of Trinity College, Cambridge (Stephen Layton, conductor). In the fall, Walton will release Austin Schend's To Achieve Thine EndsJason Michael Saunders' Terrai maris et caeli, and my newest work, In profundum maris, with text by my dear friend Kathryn Sparks. Perhaps most exciting, in the fall Walton will also be publishing my Mass for a New Millennium in its entirety!
