Love bade me welcome

This is an SATB setting of George Herbert's well-known poem 'Love III'. It works well as a communion anthem.

Love came down

If you haven't already done your Christmas shopping, and planned your carol service, here is a short and sweet setting of Rosetti's popular poem for SATB and organ. Please message me if you would like a score!

Let everything that hath breath

Psalm 150 is an exuberant celebration of praise. This vigorous setting has a challenging organ part with accessible choral lines. There is a solo section for a soprano and tenor, suitable for strong choral or semi-professional voices.

He shall come down

James Montgomery is one of my favourite hymn writers, and his 'Hail to the Lord's annointed' is often sung at this time of year. This anthem take two verses from the hymn, with the theme of Epiphany mind. This is a forthright SATB setting with a strong ending that will work well as an Introit too.
Duration 2".


There is no rose

Here is a moderately challenging new setting of a well known 15th century carol for SATB (some divisi for sopranos and basses). Verses can be sung solo by soprano/tenor, or a small group of voices.

Duration 2' 30".
