What's New

Vivaldi "Winter:" Kyrie and Gloria


An unaccompanied SATB choral setting of Antonio Vivaldi's "Winter" from

the "Four Seasons."


Set with Kyrie and Gloria texts, this is a suitable and novel new choice for more generally "seasonal" concert programming.



To the Manger



This advent anthem for children's church choir is based on the events that set the scene for the birth of Christ.  The child who sings this story may grow up to need it, and need to verify it for him or herself.



Lights of the Western Sky


An inspirational and celebratory two movement set of American Folk Songs, "Bright Morning Stars"

and "Oh, Watch the Stars."


Commissioned by Casper Children's Chorale in celebration

of the 2017 Solar Eclipse

and in honor of the life

of Mick McMurray
