Many thanks to the Central UMC Chancel Choir and soloists, Dr. Daniel Cummings, and the Giovanni String Quartet for recording a demonstration version of What Wondrous Love: Reflections on the Seven Last Words. This cantata for Good Friday features Sacred Harp/shape note melodies as responses to each of the Seven Last Words and includes a full liturgy for use in a Good Friday or Holy Week Tenebrae Service. It will be released by Fall 2019 on MusicSpoke. This is a recording of the final movement- enjoy!

I am happy to announce that I have joined the community of MusicSpoke, a self-publishing hub for quality composers. You can check there for additional releases from me as well as other music by some wonderful living composers. My first release there is my arrangement of Pat-a-pan, but I will be releasing some previously unavailable music there within the next few months.
