About My Music
Much (though not all) of the music on this site is provided absolutely free of charge. Some people think ‘free’ music isn’t worth anything, but I view sharing this music as part of consecrating my time and talents. Running this website is not free, so your support with an occasional purchase helps to “keep the lights on,” and is much appreciated! If you would like to express your appreciation financially, your donation (no matter how small) is greatly appreciated! Just click the ‘Donate’ button below to send your contribution. Thank you!
Please note: Even the ‘free’ items must be added to your cart. When you check out, you will of course not be charged anything. A download link will be sent by email so you can retrieve the PDFs.
Also, the item counter is only for purchasing multiple licenses of an item (for multiple performers, eg. choirs). You do not need to add more than one copy of a free item to your cart.
Many of my choral pieces are written specifically for ward and/or stake choirs with modest resources. One of the problems with most easier choir arrangements is that they sound easy. Choristers* want to produce beautiful music! Just as you can tell when someone is playing out of a piano method book vs. playing literature, overly simple hymnal-plus type arrangements that merely throw in a bit of fluff do not keep choristers* or listeners engaged.
My goal is to write pieces for choir that are easy, but don’t sound easy. To make up for less-challenging voice parts, I have written accompaniments, usually for organ (and often for organist+assistant or organ+solo instrument) that have accompaniments sufficiently ambitious to hide voice parts that often do come right out of the hymnal.
*A chorister is one who sings in a choir. This term has long been misused amongst members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to refer to a music director or conductor. Don’t feel bad if you have said “chorister” when you meant “director.” I, myself, am a recovering mis-user of the term!
