I’m honoured to be guest conducting the Guelph Chamber Choir this season as part of their search for a new music director. HAVEN: music of protection and peace features selections from Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu nostri, Schütz’s Musikalische Exequien, Matthew Emery’s Missa Brevis Boreal, and the premiere of my own Lord, grant us… on text by Rilke.

The Echo is being released on DaCapo Chamber Choir’s latest album of NewWorks winning compositions. The album will be released at their November concert, White Lights in Darkness, on November 3 and 4. The Echo won the 2011 NewWorks competition and was 2nd prize winner in the Godfrey Ridout category of the SOCAN Foundation awards for young composers.
My short choral work Morning Hymn has recently been published by Cypress Choral Music. More information and orders are available from their website.
Morning Hymn was commissioned by the Summer Institute of Church Music in honour of Patricia Wright, organist at Metropolitan United Church in Toronto and the Institute’s 2017 honourary fellow in church music. The text, a poem by Pat’s friend and close collaborator Patricia Orr, is particularly suitable both for sacred and secular occasions.
