The March 2013 edition of the ALCM’s journal CrossAccent contains the following review of my music:
How Can I Keep from Singing? is a handy piece to have on file for when there is limited rehearsal time. Most church choirs would likely have this learned with just a few minutes of rehearsal. The tune and words, attributed to Robert Lowry, are arranged in an exuberant Southern folk hymn setting. The two-part harmony would work with any combination of adult or children’s voices. The C-instrument part could be learned easily by a high-school-level instrumentalist of average ability. Shaw’s How Can I Keep from Singing? offers quality with minimal time commitment.
