These 'A cappella' choral works in the English language are a feature of the Evensong service in the Anglican Communion. The music requires a highly trained choir of the standard that one would normally expect in cathedrals and large churches, but is accessible most choirs as the vocal ranges suit average voices.

The works are a matched set in that they open and close identically. The music is scored for soprano, mezzo-soprano, alto, tenor, baritone, and bass ; and has also been orchestrated for a standard symphony orchestra ( albeit three trumpets .) The choral and orchestral parts suitable for a school orchestra are included

Thankyou for your comments, Lenard. Much appreciated.

One sees much more of the world when one is walking, and even much more when travelling alone without the distractions of a companion. On one occasion I even climbed a small 3500' mountain on my own which could have been fatal had I broken a leg so I guess that was foolhardy. Not telling anyone where I was going was an exercise in stupidity.

Possessed of an enquiring mind, which some would call scientific, I am constantly observing the landscape, rocks, animals and plants, and how they relate to one another. Partly this is a consequence of being an artist amongst other things. My music seems to come from the same place.

I am pleased that you are taking time to see the world, and trust you will find the new perspectives that you will gain both fulfilling and enriching. As an art teacher I tell my students that they will find satisfaction and happiness in working towards a goal, and not necessarily in achieving it.

Thank you very much for your comments on my book "Behold The Glory of God". Such comments comming from such an acomplished author as your self means very much to me and will inspire me to other works.At present I am walking the western states of the United States looking for interesting and inspirational material for other books. I undertook this adventure because I felt stagnant and wanted to add more dimentions to my life.
I have reviewed your web site and books, I am afraid they are beyound me as for as making a comment. Although I love music, I have no experience in the matter.
Thank you once more and may God inspire you to continue your work and bring joy to your life.
