New work premieres Sunday Jan 9 at 5pm!

Drake’s Hymn premieres next Week!

After 12 years of marriage (and three kids!), my wife and I finally wrote a piece together.  Joy sings in a local straight-tone choir Sonus, and she was an amazing collaborator, as we crafted a very contemporary choir work from a 440 year old poem.

I hope you’ll join us next Sunday January 9, as the Nashville Composer Collective premieres Drake’s Hymn at St Edward Catholic Church.  Concert is free and open the public.

Sunday January 9th
St. Edward Catholic Church
188 Thompson Ln,
Nashville, TN 37211

The full text is below: 

Disturb us, Lord, when
We are too pleased with ourselves,
When our dreams have come true
Because we dreamed too little,

When we arrived safely
Because we sailed too close to the shore.
Disturb us, Lord, when
with the abundance of things we possess
We have lost our thirst
For the waters of life;

Having fallen in love with life,
We have ceased to dream of eternity
And in our efforts to build a new earth,
We have allowed our vision
Of the new Heaven to dim.
Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly,
To venture on wilder seas
Where storms will show Your mastery;
Where losing sight of land,
We shall find the stars.
We ask you to push back
The horizons of our hopes;
And to push back the future

In strength, courage, hope, and love.
This we ask in the name of our Captain,
Who is Jesus Christ.

Sir Francis Drake 1577

Happy 2022!
