Music of Consolation and Hope

View from Mar-Lu-Ridge Summer Camp, Jefferson, Maryland

Our Father, based on a haunting Slovak chant of the Lord’s Prayer, memorializes all who have died from violence and tragedy, including those from COVID-19. This work encapsulates the pathos and poignancy of our time.  If we are to heal as individuals and as a people, there is no better place to begin than with this prayer.  The performance is by Yale vocal artists. 

Here is my setting of the Beatitudes entitled, Blessed, available from MorningStar Music.   

When You Pass through the Waters is based on a favorite biblical passage of comfort, Isaiah 43.  There are versions for unison, two-part, and SATB ensembles at MorningStar Music.
