For the past 2 weeks I’ve been working and stressing over a hymn based on Psalms 91:9-11 for a Moravian and Methodist hymnal and songbook. After I would compose the counter-point I would check and recheck to make sure I didn’t break any traditional part writing rules. After I checked for parallel 5ths and 8vas I kept getting hidden 5ths, but thank the Lord for Tchaikovsky who said they only matter when it concerns the soprano and bass. Also, I had a couple of times where I doubled the bass of…See More

Why Does God Let Me Live (a hymn for the unexpected transformation of 2020)

I used to post here all the time, so I apologize for not contributing lately. The genesis of this hymn started with a simple statement from my best friend complaining about the simplicity of contemporary Christian music’s lyrics and chords. I told him if I ever wrote a hymn I would try my best to put more meat in the words especially. The following week I was contacted by a client and dear friend who is absolutely one of the greatest trombone players in the world telling me that I should write…See More

Thanks for the invite, Rodney. I was quite impressed by your Sins of the Old Testament pieces. Dance of the Golden  Calf was quite beguiling. I'm currently listening to BelgianComposer's new Double Bass Sonata (http://youtu.be/c4wIy1qyf1E). Check his Youtube channel out. I haven't run across him elsewhere, but his work is consistently first rate. Again, thanks for your work.
