What's New?

12/26/15: The latest issue of The Hymn (Fall 2015, Vol 66, No. 4) has a review of the Isaac Watts collection In Melody and Songs, which calls my tune DIDN'T SEE THAT COMING "particularly striking." It's quite an honor to have the reviewer (David Music) mention my tune out of the hundreds in the collection. And quite satisfying, as it's one of the craziest hymn tunes I've ever written. (Even crazier because it is still singable.)

Clap Your Hands12/08/15: World Library Press just released "Clap Your Hands," for SATB choir, flute/piccolo, and percussion. It's my arrangement of a Yoruban folk song with a text from Psalm 47. Not only did WLP do a meticulous job of editing the piece, they also made a really nice recording of it. I don't want to brag, but it's the lead piece in their latest choral subscription packet...

10/10/15: GIA just uploaded a recording and preview score of Kwake Yesu Nasimama/Here on Jesus Christ I Will Stand. Why don't you head on over and take a look/listen?

10/05/15: I turned in my book manuscript to Baker today--my little birthday present to myself. Now all I have to do is wait a year for it to come out...

09/24/15: Want to spend an hour with Greg? (The answer, of course, is "who wouldn't?) Video and a PDF are now available for his May 16 training event, "Unlocking the Mysteries of Church Sound Systems" at Pathway Ministries in Byron Center, MI. Look out--you may just learn something.

09/04/15: Cardiphonia is taking on the ambitious goal of releasing albums for the whole Psalter in coming years. I have two songs on the latest collection:
Psalm 149: Let God's People Sing a New Song
Psalm 137: So Far From Home


If it's not here, it's just old news...

This handy little primer suggests a few of my favorite or most popular compositions in various genres, making it a good starting place for newbies. Or just search the site:
