After a very successful launch in 2011, Morningstar’s “Christmas with The Singers Choral Series” will welcome three of my scores to the mix any day. Mark Lawson, the outstanding head of Morningstar Music, has been traveling from ACDA convention to convention, and I believe at least some of the new titles are good to go already! Stay tuned to the Morningstar site (linked above) to watch for these works:
In Dulci Jubilo (SSATBB, a cappella), written for The Singers in 2011 and commissioned by Erika Gesme for her parents Dr. Dean and Laura Gesme
Hark! the Herald Angels Sing (SATB, div. a cappella), written for The Singers in 2009 and commissioned by Susan Mohs in memory of her parents Mathew and Helen Mohs
Away in a Manger (SATBB), written for The Singers inaugural season in 2004 and used as a traditional encore a number of times
These three scores will be joining my arrangements of Angels We Have Heard on High (2010) and O Little Town of Bethlehem (2003) which had a wonderful first year in print. I am so happy to see how many people are able to use these new arrangements across the country….. 9000 copies in the first year!
