Christ Is the Day

Christ Is The Day was composed specifically for my recording, This Our Joy and This Our Feast (more info here).  Richard Leach’s finely crafted text inspired a gentle, lilting melody that builds in intensity to a most emphatic conclusion.  For SATB choir with oboe and piano, it can be purchased at giamusic.com.

Before the Song Was Done

The poetry of Sara Teasdale, which I discovered in an art song setting, was the inspiration for this work.   A Christmas carol for SATB chorus with piano, oboe and cello accompaniment, it is both meditative and joyful, ending gently with the baby Jesus sleeping through it all.  Available for purchase at giamusic.com.
