I wrote this arrangement after hearing a performance by Roger McMurrin and the Kyiv Symphony Chorus. This is considered the national spiritual song of Ukraine and was written in the 19th century. My arrangement is done as a prayer for peace and a tribute to the people of Ukraine.
This festive Baroque piece is set for a large brass ensemble.
Proclamation was composed by Ben Roundtree and rock musician and worship leader Dan Rebeiz. Its inspiration comes from the shepherds who heard the angelic announcement of Christ’s birth.
This setting was written for the Dominion Brass on the first anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks. After the brass introduction, the congregation sings 4 verses, building to a grand climax in praise of the God who is “Our shelter from the stormy blast, and our eternal home.”
This festive setting of the National Hymn was written for the Dominion Brass. It features fanfares and interludes to accompany the singing of all 4 verses.
This composition is based on a theme by Marty McCall – a chant which says “Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world.” It was written for Eurobrass and performed on the 2012 tour of Germany. It begins quietly with the low brass and goes through several variations, concluding with the tune EASTER HYMN and a brilliant coda.
Hallelujah Fanfare combines the concept of Wagner’s “Gathering of the Armies” with several tunes containing “Hallelujah.” It begins with 4 antiphonal choirs, includes a backstage/offstage choir, and ends with everyone on stage in a rousing conclusion.

This piece opens with the brass and organ alternating phrases. It was originally for organ alone, but its pomp and splendor lend well to the addition of the brass.
This serene setting features the percussion section and soloists at the beginning, builds to a climax, and then settles back to percussion and brass soloists. A very pretty tune that incorporates the refrain “O Come, Let Us Adore Him.”
