"Make a Joyful Noise" - SSAT(B)B)
A jubilant, text-driven setting of the familiar Psalm 100:1-2. Set in ABA form with minimal divisi, this piece would work well as a short anthem or as a choral introit at the beginning of worship.
Make a joyful noise unto the Lord!
Worship the Lord with gladness,
Come before him with singing
Make a joyful noise unto the Lord
All ye people to the ends of the earth! Amen.
"We Greet the Morn" - SAATB
This prayerful piece features three stanzas of original text with an Alleluia chorus at the end of each verse. “Show us your vision, what is ours to do…” Use it as a simple anthem, or sing each verse at a different place in the service: introit, call to prayer, and benediction response.
We greet the morn, a new day dawning,
With open hands and hearts that sing:
We bring ourselves, a humble offering,
An instrument, your peace to bring.
Show us your vision, what is ours to do,
Illumined, changed, and made anew.

"Psalm 19" - SAATB
A reverent setting of Psalm 19:1 with a bright climax on the words, “Behold the glory” before drawing to a quiet close. Use it as an introit, a response to Scripture, or as a prayer response.
The heavens are telling the glory of God
And the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
Behold the glory, behold the glory, the glory of God.
