Another Choral Publication Is on the Way …


It gives me great pleasure to announce that Colla Voce, Inc., the outstanding music publisher from Indianapolis, will publish my choral piece On Christmas Night. This is my sixth publication with Colla Voce and I am deeply appreciative for my relationship with them.

They actually published this piece in its original form (SATB/Keyboard) a year or so ago, but this new publication is an arrangement of my original composition, this time for men’s choir with flute and harp (keyboard).

In addition to the two versions of On Christmas Night, Colla Voce has published my compositions: In the Bleak Midwinter, Trust in Me, Love Came Down at Christmas, and Balulalow.  You can find details and recordings of these pieces and others over on the music page of this website (click on “Music” above, then “Choral”).

Speaking of recordings, as previously announced, this Friday I will be flying to the Cincinnati area to attend the recording session of my In the Bleak Midwinter and Balulalow.  The recording venue is the First United Methodist Church of Hamilton, OH and the performing group will be the Stanbery Singers conducted by Paul John Stanbery.

The recording is under the auspices of PARMA Recordings and will be released on the Navona label. It will have distribution through Naxos, Barnes & Noble, Spotify and more.  It will be a compilation CD of Christmas works by several composers including yours truly! Look for a release next fall in time for your Christmas stocking!

I am so looking forward to being part of the recording process as well as the post-recording production activities.  I will announce distribution details as they become available.  As of now, the CD remains untitled.  I will announce the title from here as well.

I hope you will explore the music page on this site and encourage those you know who are responsible for holiday programming to consider using my works. Most importantly, if you have sung my pieces or you are programming any of them, please let me hear from you.

I will have another HUGE career announcement in a few weeks – stay tuned! Meanwhile, I’ll see you ONLINE!  – JAS
