Choral Review in The Hymn

The January 2011 edition of The Hymn (published quarterly by The Hymn Society – US and Canada) includes a favorable review of my anthem , “Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing” (published by MorningStar Music): “New tunes often help us hear and sing familiar texts with heightened awareness; this anthem certainly evokes such an awareness. The composer brings fresh new meaning to the text in this well-crafted three-part anthem. The key throughout is D major. The accompaniment is pianistic but could be adapted to the organ. The anthem is well suited for voices and would work for small churches as well as large churches. It would be a strong selection for a summer anthem during Ordinary time, or Lent.”
