Those Old-Time Sing-Along Songs

I wrote and arranged the setting for this medley of sing-along standards: She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round The Mountain, I’ve Been Workin’ on the Railroad and My Bonnie Lies over the Ocean. Your audiences will enjoy participating rather than simply listening.

That Song My Mother Sang

You pretty well know the whole song from the title. This sort of ballad has barbershop written all over it.

Sound Celebration

I wrote and arranged this energetic song honoring music and other sounds of life around us. The men’s version of this arrangement is published by the BHS. There is now an SATB version for YMIH/YWIH singers, as well one for women’s voices.

Only a Voice on the Air

This would be a great ballad in a show-biz/Broadway set. The story is that success in show biz does not necessarily equal a happy life.

My Life Flows On (How Can I Keep from Singing)

This beautiful hymn speaks of joy in the face of suffering. The lyrics are just about as strong as those of It Is Well with My Soul, which is saying something.
