Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Isabella

Also, this Christmas season, there was a performance of my string orchestra arrangement of the carol Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Isabella.

This performance was perhaps a little tentative, but there was only one rehearsal prior to the concert.

I Hear America Singing

My largest work to premier this year was for a patriotic program, I Hear America Singing. It’s written for Baritone soloist, mixed chorus, and orchestra. The text is from Walt Whitman.

I wrote it with the wonderful voice of Thomas Potter in mind, and was very fortunate that he was available for the performance.

This is one of my own favorites from my series of original Christmas carols for string quartet (or string orchestra), Shepherds.

A Christmas carol

Last year, First United Methodist Church of Orlando liked one of my Christmas carols (originally for chorus and organ) so much that they commissioned an orchestral arrangement.

I probably wouldn’t have considered doing that on my own, and it turned out really well. Thanks, Bill!
