02) Show Yourself SATB, SAB, 2pt

I’m so jazzed about this song. This was originally anthem sung by the amazing Cynthia Erivo from the movie “Harriet” (the story of Harriet Tubman) Powerful and compelling… a real show stopper.
04) Come What May SATB, SAB, SSA
This beautiful ballad is from the Broadway version of Moulin Rouge. It’s truly one of the most romantic songs I have ever arranged. It’s also one of those songs that starts soft and slow and builds to a huge climax at the end. (right up my alley)

This is a Sara Bareilles/John Legend piece with a powerful lyric about the struggle being an immigrant in today’s political atmosphere. Timely and thought provoking.

This is the beautiful, lyric ballad from Stephen Sondheim’s “Sweeney Todd”.
As with all of Mr Sondheim’s publications, we worked with him directly on this setting of Johanna. He thought it was “swell”… I’ll take swell.

I’m interested in publishing a wide variety of music. Here is a very simple folk song, penned by Jack Johnson and Ben Harper and used in the movie ”Curious George”. It’s has a simple, yet inspiring lyric and is perfect for the very young singer.
28) Up on the Housetop SAB, 2 pt.
Did you know this was the 2nd oldest Christmas Song in the world?
I thought it was time for a Discovery , contemporary version of this. And since there’s a long history of rewriting the lyric, I penned a 21st century version of that as well. Christmas goes funky!
